    Ce soir-là, elle était la reine du bal... pour la dernière fois : la riche et mondaine Virginia Wakeling a été tuée lors du gala du Metropolitan Museum dont elle était l'une des plus généreuses donatrices, vraisemblablement précipitée du toit. Par qui ? L'affaire n'a jamais été élucidée. Trois ans plus tard, Laurie Moran, l'enquêtrice phare de l'émission Suspicion, s'empare du cold case. Elle découvre vite que Virginia était une femme très courtisée : un petit ami nettement plus jeune qu'elle, désigné à l'époque comme le principal suspect, mais également de nombreuses personnalités en vue - collectionneurs, promoteurs immobiliers, entrepreneurs... - avaient noué avec elle d'étroites relations. Tous étaient présents lors de la célèbre soirée caritative. Mais qui aurait eu intérêt à se débarrasser de Virginia ?
