“A beautifully plotted story that features an unusual setting and fully realized characters. This polished triumph launches an intriguing new series.” —Library Journal Starred Review

High-flying stuntwoman Darcy Lott faces seemingly impossible feats without batting an eye. But when a stunt goes awry and leaves a protégé injured, Darcy, a Buddhist, retreats to a remote monastery deep in the California redwoods. She has two tasks: to face her secret fear and to deliver a message from her Zen teacher to the enigmatic leader, Garson-roshi. When she arrives, Darcy finds that the isolated monastery harbors its own secrets and dangers. The Roshi is poisoned and an attempt is made on Darcy’s life. Winter weather cuts off escape, and as the unwary mediation students go about their solitary retreat, the threat of murder hangs over them all. To protect them, and to stay alive herself, Darcy must break through her own fears and see a reality for which no stunt training has prepared her.
