When a Harvard Architecture School superstar plunges off the balcony at a graduation party, the police see an accident, not foul play. But fellow-student Iris Reid knows that any jealous member of the ruling clique would have relished pushing him off. Twenty years later, a reunion is luring the same cast of characters back to Cambridge. The opening night dinner is being held in a Modernist house that Iris has designed. She hopes to untangle the events that led to her friend's death. But the murderer has other plans.
When a long-ago boyfriend turns up dead the night of the dinner, all the incriminating evidence points to Iris. What began as an attempt to avenge her old friend turns into a desperate race to avoid being framed by the clever killer - a killer capable of twisting the truth into a bloody conundrum.
"An exciting, engrossing tale of greed, deceit and murder." (The Kirkus Review)

Great story narrated by my new favorite narrator
Definitely. Loved the insider view of architecture, architects and their world.
Absolutely, I never put it down.
Iris Reid, the main character.
The chase scene in Mt. Auburn Cemetery when Iris must harness all her courage to escape the killer.
Loved the way the author brings the setting of Cambridge, Massachusetts to life as a character in the book. Also loved the insider peek at the competitive world of Harvard trained architects
