The perfect brother. The perfect boyfriend. The perfect lie.

Mags doesn't believe her brother's fall was an accident. In that forty-foot stairwell, he didn't just slip over the edge.

But there is only one witness, Jody, the girlfriend grieving at his bedside.

Which is another story Mags doesn't believe.

Because Jody likes telling stories, and this may be her most twisted one yet.

As Mags begins to unearth the secrets hidden in her brother's wake, she finds she isn't just looking for the truth. For Mags, this is more than a simple tragedy. This is an opportunity for revenge.
