English professor and occasional sleuth Beth Austin delves into her mother's long-hidden, treacherous love triangle

Blackwell North Amer
On a sweltering summer night, a woman is murdered in her hospital bed in New York City. Almost a thousand miles away, Midwestern University professor Beth Austin is leading a class through the major works of Charles Dickens. The framework that connects this tale of two cities unfolds when Beth learns from her mother that a savage crime was committed a generation ago when her mother was a University of Chicago student - a crime that changed her life forever.
Beth is disturbed by her mother's story of painful lies and secrets - most of all, by the unsolved murder. Determined to find the truth, she slips back into the past, reliving college days of friendship and romance, while in the dark present, the murderer, still at large, follows her progress - ready to kill again.
