"It's 1958, and Evelyn Elizabeth Grace Murphy has not left the Pinnacle Hotel in fourteen months. She suffers from agoraphobia, and what's more, it's her father's hotel, and everything she needs is there. She's always been good at finding things. Fifteen years earlier, she discovered her mother dead in a Manhattan alleyway. Now, she's finding trouble inside her sanctuary. At a party for artist Billie Bell, his newest work is stolen, and Evelyn's fake boyfriend (and real best friend), movie star Henry Fox, is accused of the theft. But just as Evelyn sets out to prove Henry's innocence, she finds Billie Bell dead. The murder weapon links the crime to the hotel's chief of security. As Mac picks locks and Evelyn snoops around the hotel, they discover the walls around them contain more secrets than they previously knew. Now, Evelyn must force herself to leave the hotel to follow the clues—but when she and Mac set off to chase a lead, their car crashes, and they barely escape with their lives. Someone snipped their brake lines, and now the stakes have become dangerously high. Evelyn's knack for sleuthing—and her playful imagination—are always hard at work, so she throws an elaborate party at the hotel where every guest is a suspect. But will the killer emerge from the glamorous lineup? If not, Evelyn just might find herself next in line for murder..."
