Twenty years ago, Ellie Enderlin's sister, Lila, a brilliant mathematician, was murdered in a crime that was never solved. In the aftermath of her sister's death, Ellie entrusted her most intimate feelings to a man who turned the story into a bestselling true crime book-a book that both devastated her family and identified one of Lila's professors as the killer. Decades later, Ellie receives a piece of evidence never found with her sister's body: Lila's notebook filled with mathematical formulas. It will lead her to a hundred-year-old mathematical puzzle, to a lover no one knew Lila had, to the motives and fate of the man who profited from their family's anguish...and to the deepest secrets even sisters keep from each other.

"Ellie's life is changed when her sister, Lila, is murdered, and Thorpe, a professor in whom she confides, writes a book about the murder. Twenty years later, Ellie meets the man who was identified in the book as the murderer, and she sets out in search of the truth. Carrington MacDuffie reflects the character of Ellie as she ages and matures, transitioning smoothly from Ellie's initial conversations with Thorpe to their later talks as she begins to unravel the truth about her sister's death. In her characterizations MacDuffie contrasts Ellie's steady energy with the self-absorbed arrogance of Thorpe. Without overplaying the story's strong emotions or sad events MacDuffie gives depth to Ellie's narrative voice. Overall, MacDuffie's performance depicts the tragedy of Lila's death and the events surrounding it. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
