The dead man lay on the railroad tracks, his head and hands amputated by an onrushing train. He looked like a vagrant. Yet Gunther smells a rat. What bum wears clean white underwear? And why would a bum be covered with sores caused by deadly chemicals? His suspicions grow when an abandoned vehicle is found leaking the hazardous stuff. Then another grisly murder rocks Brattleboro and an anonymous tip links the two killings. Puzzled, Gunther recalls that old maxim -- Occam's Razor -- which implies that too many theories can muddle clear thinking. But clarity doesn't always cut it when you're facing multiple homicides, venomous blackmail, and a poisonous lust for power.
