Jane gives an overview of the book:

They were six friends from the Midwest who moved to New York City with high hopes of making it big in the music industry. Although the dream had faded, they had all remained friends—or so it seemed.

A riveting suspense story about the emotional aftermath of murder—the jealousy and hatred, the deception and rage, and the shocking secrets that lie between even the closest of friends.
