Jean Sheridan, a college dean and prominent historian, sets out to her hometown to attend the twenty-year reunion of Stonecroft Academy alumni, where she is to be honored along with six other members of her class. There is something uneasy in the air: one woman in the group about to be feted, Alison Kendall, a beautiful, highpowered Hollywood agent, drowned in her pool during an early-morning swim. Alison is the fifth woman in the class whose life has come to a sudden, mysterious end.


Adding to Jean's sense of unease is a taunting, anonymous fax she received, referring to her daughter -- a child she had given up for adoption twenty years ago.

At the award dinner, Jean is introduced to Sam Deegan, a detective obsessed by the unsolved murder of a young woman who may hold the key to the identity of the Stonecroft killer. Jean does not suspect that among the distinguished people she is greeting is The Owl, a murderer nearing the countdown on his mission of vengeance against the Stonecroft women who had mocked and humiliated him, with Jean as his final victim.

Listener Opinions

    " Loved it! Totally held my attention and is there anything better than a serial killer whose after the mean girls from his prep school and calls himself The Owl? Couldn't put it down and enjoyed every minute of it! "

    " I read a lot of mary higgins clark as a teen, and I always like her until I figured out she writes the same story in every book just different names. As an adult, I find myself getting impatient like she's wasting my time trying to fool me when the main character seems oblivious to the danger around her, and you are screaming for them to get a clue! This one was especially classic since the high schooler seemed to be the most aware of everyone...nice. It's supposed to be a twist ending. Her books always are I guess, but I just didn't feel like she gave enough clues to point to this guy...more like so many clues to make you think it's everyone else that by the end you are fed up with her multiple red herrings. I like to read these types of books on my own time..not so much for a book club. "

    " I think this was the book that made me realize that mystery novels might not be my thing. I don't know, it was tough for me to get into and I had a hard time investing in the characters. Not a horrible read, just not my cup of tea. "
