Brooklyn native and young widow Erica Donato wants to focus on her PhD research. But when her teenage daughter Chris finds a skeleton behind a wall in their crumbling Park Slope, Brooklyn, home, she and her daughter are both touched and disturbed by the mysterious tragedy. Are the remains more recent than they at first appear?
Chris' dangerous curiosity and Erica's work at a local history museum lead her right back to her neighborhood in its edgy, pregentrification days, when the age of Aquarius was turning dark. A cranky retired reporter shares old files. The charming widow of a slumlord has some surprises. The crazy old lady who hangs around Erica's street keeps trying to tell her something, and the people who know the whole story will stop at nothing to make sure it stays buried forever....
