A mystery of obsession and murder exploring the heights and depths within the world of architecture: Who would you kill to satisfy your creative ego?

On a fog enshrouded morning, a world-famous architect plunges to his death off a San Francisco cliff. Architects are being murdered as they compete for developer Magnar Jones’s prized commission: a new museum at the notorious Alcatraz Island. Magnar’s devious plan? Turn his design competition into a spectator sport, where architects soon find themselves prisoners.

Tormented architect Parker A. Rand confronts the police as the prime suspect, and Magnar’s alluring girlfriend, Celadonna Kimm, has her sights on this “friendly neighborhood” architect. With Parker’s tortured ambition spiraling into darkness, can this beloved local hero win the commission without losing his mind and his soul? A tale of death and intrigue examines arrogance, ambition, and redemption. Who will succeed—and at what cost?

Anthony Poon, AIA, is an award-winning architect, mixed-media artist, and classically trained musician. His Los Angeles company, Poon Design Inc., has completed over 300 buildings. Anthony received his degrees from Harvard University and University of California, Berkeley.
