Meet Dr. Ruby Roy. She is a twenty-nine-year-old, goofy, warm, absent-minded, and often accident-prone professor in her third year at Baron University, located a few miles from the Falls.
It doesn't help matters that she keeps stumbling into a series of embarrassing incidents. Unfortunately for Ruby, things take a turn for the worse when she discovers Professor Peter Malcolm's dead body in his office. But who could have killed him? And why?
Suddenly all the Poirot, Marple, and Sherlock Holmes books she loves reading seem to have come to life as she finds herself in the middle of a real-life murder mystery. And with the murderer on the loose, no one is safe. With the help of her husband, Cleo, her very own Watson, Ruby tries to solve the mystery before she is next on the killer's list!
