Eight colonists were killed at the original Battle of Lexington, but a Pittsburgh museum's diorama of the battle has nine bodies. The ninth is the body of a prominent Pittsburgh connoisseur, whose daughter is now a material witness--or worse. Cynthia Jakubec is a working-class gal about to jump from Main Street to Wall Street on the strength of her Harvard law degree when the 2008 recession puts her dream on hold. Now working as a legal intern at a Pittsburgh law firm representing the victim's daughter, Jakubec is drawn into the investigation and follows the trail from a Pittsburgh ghetto church to the very luxury building in midtown Manhattan where she dreams of working. Before Wall Street is again within her grasp, she will remember Robert F. Kennedy's advice: "Forgive your enemies--but remember their names."

HEATHER HENDERSON has brought her authentic, resonant voice and a full cast of characters (from a Scots nanny to a Fargo housewife) to hundreds of projects during her 20-year career. She earned her doctorate at the Yale School of Drama, and her credits include production dramaturgy on the world premiere of August Wilson's "Fences". She has published arts features and reviews in newspapers across the U.S. and has won awards for poetry and screenwriting. What seems to impress people most, though, is that she was an extra in "Animal House".
