    *Starred Review* Thirty years ago, six college friends incongruously capped the wedding celebrations of Casey and Wailer, the group's most lovable pair, with an exploration of an abandoned prison. While Casey, Wailer, Maisie, Tripper, Rachel, and Quentin wandered through the eerily deteriorating cell blocks, someone locked the gates, and they were left to figure out an escape. Tripper, the excursion's mastermind, scaled the prison wall to find help, but the others became separated inside the prison, and Wailer disappeared. Unable to bear the weight of Wailer's loss, the group loses touch until an archaeology student finds Wailer's remains stuffed in a cell wall. Casey, her widower, is the prime suspect. Quentin, reborn as Judith Carrigan, knows something that removes Casey as a suspect but would create its own complication for Judith. Boylan, who has reaped praise in recent years with memoirs exploring her transgender experience, doesn't miss a storytelling beat in her first novel as she blends atmospheric elements of a Shirley Jackson–like haunting, a secret-laden murder tale featuring an ensemble cast, and an eye-opening glimpse of the complex choices transgender people face. This crime debut is certain to attract a genre-blurring following, but recommendations to fans of Erin Kelly's The Poison Tree (2011) and Donna Tartt's The Secret History (1991) are sure bets.
