When death shatters the serenity of the exclusive moneyed enclave of Tuxedo Park, New York, Eliza Blake, co-host of KEY to America, is on the scene. While attending a lavish gala at her friend's newly renovated estate, Pentimento, Eliza's host is found dead-a grotesque suicide that is the first act in a macabre and intricately conceived plan to expose sins of the past involving some of the town's most revered citizens. Determined to find the truth, Eliza and her KEY News colleagues discover that Pentimento holds the key. The glorious mansion is actually a giant "puzzle house," filled with ingenious clues that lead them, one by one, to the victims of a fiendish killer. As Pentimento gives up its secrets it becomes clear that no amount of wealth or privilege will keep the residents of Tuxedo Park safe. But just when she unearths one final surprise, Eliza comes face to face with a murderer who believes that some puzzles should never be solved.

Professional reviews

"In this latest Eliza Blake suspense offering, Eliza and her television news co-workers must solve the mystery surrounding the gruesome death by stigmata of a prominent New York politician's husband. A series of clues quickly ties a 20-year-old unsolved disappearance as well as a string of recent rapes to his death. Isabel Keating's rich, cultured voice and deliberate pacing bring to life this clever and intrigue-filled story of wealth, greed, and high-society secrets, in the finest Mary Jane Clark tradition. Keating's portrayals of the various characters--from pompous matron to innocent child--are polished and interesting. Fans will not be disappointed in the story or its narration. A.C.P.
