On the night Malcolm and Maud Angel are murdered, their daughter, Tandy, knows just three things:

1. She was one of the last people to see her parents alive.

2. She and her brothers are the only suspects.

3. She can't trust anyone - maybe not even herself.

Having grown up under their parents' intense perfectionist demands, none of the Angel children have come away undamaged.

Tandy decides that she will have to solve the crime on her own, but digging deeper into her powerful parents' affairs is a dangerous game. As she uncovers haunting secrets and slowly begins to remember flashes of disturbing past events buried in her memory, Tandy is forced to ask: What is the Angel family truly capable of?

The Angel household is about to be changed, for the worse or better, you pick. Matthew (the oldest) Tandoori "Tandy", her twin Harry, and Hugo (The youngest) are woken up to police threatening to break down their door, and find out that their parents are dead. Not only have their parents been murdered, but there was no break-in, nothing unlocked or out of normal, no sign of a struggle, and they are the main suspects.

Even our Narrator, Tandy, thinks it could be one of them, even herself, thanks to her little black-out tendency and holes in her memory. She even thinks it could be her twin. With little evidence of outside foul play, all evidence points to them, and since she's the most methodical and emotionless one, all fingers point to her. But being all of those things also make her the sharpest and intelligent of them.
