Zara Evans has come to New York: to the Aurelia Theater, home to the visionary director Leopold Henneman. She's here to play her dream role in Echo and Ariston, the Greek tragedy that taught her everything she knows about love.
When the director asks Zara to promise that she will have no outside commitments, no distractions, it's easy to say yes. But it's hard not to be distracted when there's a death at the theater - and then another. Deaths that could be accidents, or murder, or a curse that always comes in threes.
It's hard not to be distracted when Eli Vasquez, assistant lighting designer, a girl of tattoos and abrupt laughs and every form of light, looks at Zara.
It's hard not to fall in love.
In heartachingly beautiful prose, Amy Rose Capetta has spun together a mystery and a love story into an impossible, inevitable whole. She casts lantern light on two girls, finding each other on a stage set for a tragedy: Zara is Echo, and Echo always dies. Night after night.
Echo after echo.
