English professor Isobel Harding knew she’d meet opposition when she invited her aunt, Dr. Elizabeth Wilcox, to be the keynote speaker at Evangeline University’s literary conference, in Jacob’s Ladder, Nova Scotia. As the best-selling author of the controversial new book Analyzing Sylvia Plath, Dr. Wilcox has drawn the ire of the academic and literary communities, who condemn her work—and its radical views on Sylvia Plath’s life—as sensationalistic tabloid journalism. Even before the book’s popularity exploded, Dr. Wilcox attracted headlines when a drug addiction very publicly ended her psychiatry career. But when someone attempts to poison Dr. Wilcox at the conference’s welcoming reception, it’s clear that her critics go beyond a few disgruntled professors. Now, to protect her aunt, Isobel must dig into the lives of her friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues to determine who among them could be at the center of this deadly maze of intrigue, which grows more disturbing with every twist.
