Someone has to take the blame when the Britannia Theatre's balcony collapses, killing a dozen people. The fingers all point at the architect, but although Douglas Layton knows the flaw wasn't in his design, he can't fight a guilty verdict. When Layon is finally released from prison, he has no job, no family, nowhere to go. He needs to assume a new identity and rebuild his life. But in this novel by the author of House of Thieves, the disgraced man soon finds himself digging up the past in a way he never anticipated. If the collapse wasn't an accident, who caused it? And why? And what if they find out who he used to be?
