But he doesn’t enjoy his freedom for long. His dead body turns up in Liza’s rented room during a snowbound weekend with her beau. With the police and an insurance investigator hounding her for information, and a rising threat that she or someone she loves could be the next victim, Liza believes her only solution to this murder is sudoku—and the secrets her clever student encoded into the seventeen-clue puzzle he created just before he died.
