Abstract:

Until the murder in the New England town of Elm Harbor, the perfectly constructed veneer had hidden the racial complications of the town's past, the secrets of a prominent family, and the most hidden bastions of African-American political influence. At the center is Lemaster Carlyle, the university president, and his wife, Julia, a dean of the divinity school, who are living 'in the heart of whiteness.' The murder victim was Julia's lover years earlier. What Julia would discover in her investigation would be a politically earth-shattering motive.
