Industrial security expert Milan Jacovich heard about the suicide of Ellen Carnine on the news, but it meant nothing to him because he did not know her. When Ellen's father, Professor William Carnine of the nearby Bryarly College Biology Department, asks Milan to find out why his daughter committed suicide, the sleuth wants to say no. This is not his line of work. However, police officer Martusen sent the doctor who desperately needs closure for him and Mrs. Carnine.

The twenty-nine years old vice president of Wheetek Inc. seemed contented. She was a big success with her firm, an internet company, and had a male roommate. Milan begins finding discrepancies that make him wonder if Ellen really jumped off the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge or did foul play occur and if the answer is yes, by who and why.

The latest Jacovich mystery is a powerful entry in a strong series. Once started on the case, the star sleuth refuses to give it up until he learns the truth. Besides the usual whirlwind fun tour of Cleveland that Drew Carey would enjoy, Les Roberts provides his audience with another entertaining investigative tale
