From the acclaimed master of mystery and suspense comes a thrilling novel about the illusion of film—and the reality of murder.

When a film director hears a friend’s deathbed confession about an unsolved crime that rocked the racing world nearly 30 years ago, he is compelled to pick up the thread of the unfinished tale. But someone is willing to do anything—including commit murder—to see to it that the story is never told.
