Note Professor Emeritus Alex Chandler returns to his alma mater to attend his alumni reunion and discovers a university vastly different from the one he had known: graduate students burdened with heavy student- loan debt facing a lack of teaching opportunities, tenure-track positions being replaced by part-time and adjunct positions, "road scholars" forced to hold several low-paying teaching jobs in their struggle to make ends meet, online courses eliminating teaching positions, and an aging faculty reluctant or refusing to retire. Alex discovers that older tenured faculty have died under suspicious circumstances. Are these deaths accidental? If not, who is responsible, what could their motives be, and why are only certain faculty being targeted? Alex's search for the truth places himself and others in danger. There are many twists and turns before the truth finally comes out but not before there are dire consequences for Alex and his compatriots
