Statistician Maggie Ryan returns to her alma mater to consult for Charlie Fielding, who is conducting experiments on how skilled readers read. She is invited to lunch with retired professor Tal Chandler. But Chandler is found dead. The police say suicide, but Maggie offers a different reading of the crime scene, casting suspicion on Fielding, others in the department and the dead man’s widow.
