As the daughter of New York detective Archie Goodwin, Cory Thorne's response to her crumbling marriage is to tackle a tough investigation. Twenty years ago, lead singer Mickey Ascher of The Rind was slaughtered in his Back Bay penthouse by an unknown assailant. His guitarist, Dan Quasi, disappeared. Now Unsolved Mysteries plans to heat up the cold case, just when an upscale Boston exchange program is flying Dan Quasi's new band to Paris. Why would a former rock-&-roll legend, antiwar ringleader, and murder suspect choose the Eiffel Tower and EuroDisney for his overdue comeback? Cory's quest for a scoop in the city where she met her husband pits the Bostonians' musical mystery tour against her personal search for lost time. With drugs, sex, and long-buried grudges popping up around the band like land mines, the nostalgia trip turns deadly. Now Cory can't dodge her father's question: Who killed Mickey Ascher?
