Washington DC is the setting of the annual library conference and Ally Derringer is anticipating a magnificent event to cap off her year as president. Many new members have recently joined, although it is unclear why. The festive atmosphere is interrupted as an unsolved murder threatens to wreck the conference. Strangely, few conventioneers seem sad that the librarian is dead. Instead, some seem positively joyous. The library association is dominated by radical liberals who feel no empathy with the demise of a conservative. Is the killer an angry ex-flame? Someone hiding criminal behavior?
