Summary:
Talcott Garland belongs to two privileged worlds: the upper crust African American society of the Eastern seaboard -- families who summer at Martha's Vineyard -- and the inner circle of an Ivy League law school. He is a successful law professor, devoted father, and husband of a beautiful and ambitious woman, whose future desires may threaten the family he holds so dear. When Talcott's father, Judge Oliver Garland, a disgraced former Supreme Court nominee, is found dead under suspicious circumstances, Talcott wonders if he may have been murdered. Guided by the elements of a mysterious puzzle that his father left, Talcott must risk his marriage, his career and even his life in his quest for justice.
