From the internationally bestselling author of The Bronze Horseman, the tale of an Ivy League campus devastated by the intractable mystery at the heart of a student’s death
Four students and their relationships lie at the core of this dazzling novel of mystery, murder and suspense, set in a snowbound Ivy League college. Their focal point is brilliant basketball star Kristina Kim – apparently happy and stable, but soon revealed to have hidden secrets.
When she is found dead in the snow, it falls to local detective Spencer O’Malley, a man who had half fallen in love with her, to investigate the crime. The spotlight falls on her three closest friends… and a story as gothic and intense as a modern-day Wuthering Heights begins to unravel.
