    It's the holiday season, but there's little reason for cheer at one of New York's most elite colleges. A respected professor is dead, strangled and dumped in an elevator shaft. Lola Dakota's lifeless fingers clutch a few strands of hair, and a piece of paper in her pocket reads "The Deadhouse". Opportunistic murder seems unlikely as assistant DA Alexandra Cooper uncovers a distressing pattern of betrayal and terror. There's proof that Lola's husband wanted her dead. And why did Lola have a photograph of Charlotte Voight pinned to her office bulletin board?

    Assistant D.A. Alexandra Cooper is deeply involved in a high-profile homicide case against defendant Brendan Quillian, a prominent young businessman charged with the brutal strangulation of his beautiful young wife. His conviction is not a certainty: Quillian was conveniently out of town on the day of the killing, and his defense attorney seems to be one step ahead of Cooper's effort to prove Quillian paid a hit man to commit the crime. But halfway through the trial, a major catastrophe alters the course of Cooper's case.

    Alexandra Cooper has a tough case to prosecute. Businessman Brendan Quillan has been charged with hiring an assassin to kill his wife, but the evidence is flimsy. Then an explosion kills Quillan's construction worker brother. The blast isn't a terrorist act, nor is it an accident, but it looks as though Duke Quillan was the target. None of the investigating team had any idea that Brendan had a brother, never mind one so far on the other side of the tracks.
