(From the publisher):
Earl Borstleman, Professor of Mathematics at State University, was a medium sort of man--medium height and weight, medium-colored hair, medium-sized features.
Altogether quiet, conservative and mild, his sole (and wholly innocent) idiosyncrasy was a gentle craving for neatness and order.
Hardly the sort of man whom you would expect to murder his faithful loving wife.
But, quite suddenly on the morning of fortieth birthday, Earl Borstleman decided to do just that.
