A murder mystery solved by an economics professor who misapplies some basic economic
principles. The professor is supposed to be the hero, but he comes across as an
idiot savant. The book tries to be an economics primer, but it doesn't work.
It manages to make some simple ideas seem unintelligible by using the jargon of
economics professors like Marshall and Jevons.
