Journal Entry 1 by wingtabby-cat-ownerwing from Bellingham, Washington USA on Sunday, October 13, 2019
Jean Sheridan, a college dean and prominent historian, sets out to her hometown in Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York, to attend the twenty-year reunion of Stonecroft Academy, where she is to be honored along with six other members of her class. There is, however, something uneasy in the air: one woman in the group about to be feter, Alison Kendall, a beautiful, high-powered agent, died just a few days before, drowned in her pool during an early-morning swim, the fifth woman in her class who has come to a sudden, mysterious end.

Also adding to Jean's sense of unease is a taunting, anonymous fax she has just received, referring to her daughter, Lily, a child she had given up for adoption twenty years ago, the offspring of a romance between her and a West Point cadet killed in a accident a week before graduation. She had always kept the child's existence a secret, so, who has found out?

Struggling to conceal her fears, Jean arrived at the hotel where the reunion is being held. One by one she sees the other honorees, including Laura Wilcox, the class beauty, whose dazzling exterior belies the fact that her television is sinking, and the four men who, like Jean, had spent bitterly unhappy years at Stonecroft: Carter (formerly Howie) Stewart, an acerbic and successful playwright, once the class nerd; renowned child psychiatrist and talk-show celebrity Mark Fleischman, who has never been able to resolve the pain of his own adolescence; Gordon Amory; a media mogul, hardly recognizable as the butt of cruel jokes; Robby Brent, a popular comedian, whose caustic human emanates from a childhood of rejection. Omnipresent is an old classmate, Jack Emerson, the chairman of the reunion, whose reason for spearheading the event may be for a reason other than class spirit.
