First edition. Signed and dated by the author. As new, unread copy in dust jacket with a wraparound band. Ella Riordan is a community activist who became famous when she was beaten by police during a social protest. Now she's a squatter in a building where the owners are evicting tenants so they can convert it into luxury condos, and she’s determined to stay and defend the few holdout tenants, despite death threats. One night after a rooftop party with her fellow holdouts, Ella finds a horrible scene awaiting her in her apartment. In a panic, she calls her neighbor Molly, who convinces her that the police won’t believe she’s innocent. Together the two women concoct a gruesome plan to hide the body down the building’s elevator shaft, but the secret won’t stay buried for long. A neighbor tells Molly he had heard Ella arguing with a man in the hallway and mistrust grows between Ella and Molly.
