Full Description

A mystery of obsession exploring the heights and depths within the world of architecture:

Who would you kill to satisfy your creative ego?

On a fog-enshrouded morning, a famous architect plunges to his death off a San Francisco cliff. Architects are being murdered as they compete for developer Magnar Jones’s prized commission: a new art museum at the notorious Alcatraz Island. Magnar’s devious plan? Turn his design competition into a spectator sport, where architects soon find themselves prisoners.

Tormented architect, Parker A. Rand, confronts the police as the prime suspect, and Magnar’s alluring girlfriend, Celadonna Kimm, has her sights on this “friendly neighborhood” architect. With Parker’s ambition spiraling into darkness, can this beloved hero win the contest without losing his mind and soul? A tale of intrigue examines arrogance and redemption. Who will succeed—and at what cost?
