In 2009, in a loft complex in Bushwick, Edie was the shining star of a group of recent college graduates. Seductive, mercurial and beguiling, she had the social world in her thrall, and she and her best friends treated New York like a playground. When she committed suicide at the end of a long, drunken night, no one could quite believe it. But an overwhelming mix of grief, shock, and long-standing resentment drove each friend into their own corner, and for years, that's where they stayed.
A decade later, Lindsay has come a long way from the drug-addled world of Calhoun Lofts. She has a thriving career in magazines as a chief researcher, a cozy apartment, and true adult friendships. But when a chance reunion leads Lindsay to discover an unsettling video from that terrible, hazy night, she starts to wonder if Edie was actually murdered--and, worse, if she herself was involved. As she rifles through those months in 2009--combing through case files, old technology, and her own fractured memory--Lindsay is forced to confront the demons of her violent history to bring the truth to light.
