Trace back the violent death of a friend and see how it happened. So second-string writer Darius Just is forced to ruminate when murder rears its ugly head within the glamorous world of publishing. For amidst the brouhaha of a convention of American Booksellers, Just's onetime protege (now best-selling author) Gilvore manages to pull off the publicity stunt of all time: turning up dead. Convinced that his own sin of omission may have set off a bitter chain of circumstances that caused the death, Just searches out motives to establish a case for murder. And as he does so, his path crosses with all sorts of unsavory types - including one Isaac Asimov, who himself comes under suspicion. A wonderfully woven, old-fashioned tale of murder in which the pen is indeed proved to be mightier than the sword.
