She insisted that her partner had taken his own life to escape the humiliation of a damaging scandal.
Slowly, Christy faced the dark knowledge that not only had she lost her father, but she had become a stranger to the two people she once loved best; her husband, Joel, and her young son, Peter. Both had been drawn slowly and insidiously under Theodora's influence.

Then, on the night of a great costume ball, another body is discovered in the Tower Room. Suddenly, Christy Moreland finds herself fighting not only to save her father's reputation and regain her son, but for her own sanity and indeed her life.« less
