"An intricately plotted mystery."
A young woman found strangled in Mingo House, a brownstone museum in Boston's Back Bay, was dressed in Victorian finery as if for high tea. Soon she becomes the focus of publicity and speculation that reaches back to the Mingoes' roots in England and to the builders of the mansion.
Mark Winslow and the other trustees of Mingo House-pursuing their own agendas- disagree as to whether the museum is sustainable. As the deaths and threats multiply, one question resounds: which will survive this summer of deluge-Mingo House or its terrified staff?
