STEPHEN KING ON CHRISTOPHER SMITH: "Put me down as an enthusiastic Christopher Smith fan. Smith is a cultural genius." Sixteen years ago, Camille Miller left behind her life as an assassin in order to raise her daughter, Emma. But now, when her billionaire father is found brutally murdered, she must tap into old instincts to learn who killed her father and why. The suspects? Her six siblings, each so desperate for their father's money that they'd kill for it. What Camille doesn't see coming is Emma's plan to solve the mystery first. Or P.I. Marty Spellman's assignment, which is to find Camille or risk the deaths of those dearest to him. Over the course of one day, all three players, plus Spellman's teenaged daughter Beth, find themselves in a race to the finish. Nobody's goals are what they appear to be. Twists abound. And not one single person, for one single moment, is safe.
