A Whiff of Death by Isaac Asimov

By Isaac Asimov

Every body knew that Ralph Neufeld used to be a cautious younger chemist, in particular his professor, Lou Brade. that is why Ralph's unintended dying as a result of a confusion of chemical compounds struck Brade as hugely not likely. The police agreed.

Someone on campus had switched bottles on negative Ralph and the end result was once as lethal as were deliberate. the difficulty was once the entire correct suspects have been within the unsuitable locations whilst it happened...all the inaccurate suspects had the correct motives...and the single individual such a lot certified to unravel the crime was once already being known as the killer!

She sat down on the the hassock next to the armchair and stared levelly at him out of wide-set brown eyes (her best feature really, thought Brade). She said, "How, exactly, did it happen?

She wanted security. He wanted it, too, Brade thought somberly. He pulled into the faculty parking lot and took an open space. He took what he could get. The reserved places against the stone back wall of the chemistry building were for associate and full professors. Ordinarily, he didn't pay mind to that, but suddenly, that, too, was an aspect of the security that went with the magic dividing line. He walked up the open-work wooden staircase that took him around the building to the upper-level main entrance in front.

I've met him. He takes books out of the medical library and then won't return them. I had to send a gaggle of librarians out after him to get a volume I needed and he reduced one of them to tears by being quite nasty about it. " He left. The medical man brought in by the police agreed with the diagnosis, made a few brisk notations and disappeared. Pictures were taken from three angles and then what was left of Neufeld was wrapped in a sheet and carried out. A chunky plainclothesman remained behind.
