    Gus LeGarde's life essentially ended four years ago, when his beloved wife, Elsbeth, leapt from the Letchworth Gorge cliffs. These days, the music professor plays endless Chopin etudes on his antique piano and lavishes love on his family and dog - but nothing buries the pain or answers his burning questions. What made her jump? Why didn't she say goodbye? And how will he be able to live without her?

    When Gus LeGarde agrees to play piano for the high school drama club's production of "Spirit Me Away", a '60s-style musical he wrote in college, he doesn't expect to face a barrage of menacing pranks played on his fiancée, Camille, and the drama club. Who's sabotaging the show? And what do they have against Camille? Is it sex-crazed Armand, the Latino teen infatuated with her? Something happened last year that Camille won't talk about, and it has to do with Armand. Gus wants to know what happened, but she's not talking.
