Vera’s friend Charlie has died and left a giant hole where his friendship used to be. Actually, the hole was there before he died, because he decided to ditch her for a new crowd a while before the tragic circumstances that caused his death. Vera and Charlie were inseparable, and probably even in love, although neither of them would ever discuss that. Even though she is trying to ignore her grief and move on with her life, something is gnawing at Vera to further investigate the situation that ended Charlie’s life. Is someone who hurt Vera so deeply worth the additional pain of investigating his death?
