From the dust jacket: "The site of Lincoln's assassination becomes the setting for a mystery that echoes today's headlines when the body of Nadia Zarinski, an intern who worked for Senator Bruce Lerner, is found outside the stage door.
Nadia was a bit of a flirt and there were rumors about an affair with Lerner. Bad news for Clarise Emerson, the director of Ford's Theatre, whose nomination to head the NEA is now threatened with scandal. When suspicion shifts to her hot-tempered son Jeremiah, who was dating Nadia, Clarise begs her friend, law professor Mac Smith, for help. As he delves into the victim's past, Mac uncovers a full cast of suspects waiting in the wings before he can bring the curtain down on the real villain."
