Marc Hirsch's debut mystery follows Alice White, a hardened legal assistant in 1955 New York City, who travels upstate to investigate the violent death of a doctor. What at first appears to have been an accident turns into a deadly power-play of greed and marital discord and threatens to end her life just as she has begun to thaw.
Marc Hirsch was born in New York City and raised in the Bronx. He graduated Boston University School of Medicine in 1969. He retired from medical practice in 2011.
