As the journalist daughter of a New York detective, Cory Goodwin's response to her crumbling marriage is to tackle a tough investigation. Twenty years ago, lead singer Mickey Ascher of Boston's top rock-protest band, The Rind, was slaughtered in his Back Bay penthouse. Guitarist-songwriter Dan Quasi disappeared. Now Unsolved Mysteries is reopening the cold case. That poses a killer threat to Hands Across the Sea, Boston's international exchange program for upscale professionals. Cory's editor at Phases wants her to find out if their goodwill trip to a Mystery Destination, headlined by a Mystery Band, is a crock or a scoop. But what tips the scale for Cory is learning that the Mystery Destination is Paris, where she met her husband, and the Mystery Band is headed by her old crush Dan Quasi.
Why would a former rock-&-roll legend, antiwar ringleader, and murder suspect choose the Eiffel Tower and EuroDisney for an off-the-radar comeback? Cory's quest for answers pits Hands Across the Sea's musical mystery tour against her own search for lost time. With drugs, sex, and long-buried grudges exploding around the band like land mines, the nostalgia trip turns frightening, then fatal. Now Cory can't escape her father's question: Who killed Mickey Ascher?
