The police are stopping cars, searching for something. Nicki Clements waits patiently, until she glimpses a face she hoped she'd never see again. It's him--and he's the cop checking each car. Desperate to avoid him, she makes a panicky U-turn and escapes.But Nicki's peculiar behavior did not go unnoticed, and now the police have summoned her for questioning. A resident of Elmhirst Road has been murdered--a controversial newspaper columnist named Damon Blundy. The detectives begin peppering her with questions. Why was she seen fleeing the scene? What is her connection to the victim? Why was the knife that killed him used in such a peculiar way? Why were the words "HE IS NO LESS DEAD" painted on the wall of Blundy's study--and what do they signify?One simple answer could clear her. But she can't explain why she fled Elmhirst Road that day without revealing the secret that could ruin her.Nicki isn't guilty of murder. But she's far from innocent. . . .
