Iverson was at the university library doing some research for a
paper he was writing. He also had an evening seminar to
teach. He read something in the paper regarding a movie that
his wife wanted to see. He decided to call home and tell her
about it. Much to his surprise, a man answered the
phone. When he asked to talk to his wife, Lexy, the man asked
who was calling. Paul indicated he was Lexy's husband.
The man on the phone was Detective Stack and he asked Paul to come
home, as there had been an incident.
When Paul arrived
home he was told that his wife had fallen out of the backyard tree
to her death. Lorelei, their dog, was making quite a bit of
noise and one of the neighbors looked over his fence and saw what
had happened to Lexy. He then summoned the police.
The death was considered to be one of strange circumstances.
A few days after the funeral, Paul began to find some clues.
There were no witnesses - no neighbors happened to be looking out
the window or working in their yards that day. So it seems the
only witness is Lorelei, the dog. The only problem is dogs
can't talk - or can they?
Paul is a linguist by training and
his goal now is to teach the dog to communicate what had happened to
Lexy. Does he succeed?
