As Ambler pursues his investigation, he discovers that the murdered woman had a double life. Her intermittent visits to the city --- a whirlwind of reckless drinking and illicit liaisons with men she met in the cocktail lounges --- had their counterpart in suburban Fairfield County Connecticut where, as Dr. Sandra Dean, she practiced dermatology and lived in a gated community with a doting husband and a young daughter.

When a murder desecrates the somber, book-lined halls of New York City’s iconic 42nd Street Library, Raymond Ambler, the library’s curator of crime fiction, has a personal interest in solving the crime. His quest to solve the murder is complicated by personal entanglements involving his friend --- or perhaps more-than-friend --- Adele Morgan. Ambler suspects that the murder of the young woman, who had been working at the library under an assumed name, and the curious intervention of NYPD’s intelligence division are connected. The trail of intrigue leads to a seemingly unrelated murder in an upstate prison and a long-ago murder of a trade union reformer.
