Publisher's Summary

Twenty-five years ago, Susan Prentice lost her mother to a tragic accident. Now she is returning home for the first time to Virginia's eastern shores and the ancestral house whose front steps her mother fell down to her death.Though Susan has little memory of the accident, her arrival has alarmed those who fear what may lie dormant in Susan's memory. But it is her maternal grandmother, Alex Montoro, a proud, intense, aging doyenne of the ballet, who believes that that memory must be unlocked. For Susan is the only living witness to the tragedy - and Alex suspects that her daughter's fall was no accident.

Critic Reviews

"One of her best efforts, this carefully crafted novel of psychological suspense by the prolific Whitney, a Mystery Writers of America Grand Master, entices the reader into a series of enigmas." (Publishers Weekly)
"Whitney's 36th mystery suspense is tighter, neater, better than ever." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Energetic and richly textured... If terror and murder can be rendered ladylike, Phyllis Whitney is just the lady to do it." (Atlanta Journal & Constitution
