The Winter Hexagon is Julie Sampson’s second novel — a thriller sequel to The Eye in the Ceiling — set in greater Boston, where the adventures of Paige Moore and the Quadsters venture through the zodiac and beyond.

The Winter Hexagon

For Paige Moore, a rising sophomore at Kew College, everything begins the morning she steps outside her Boston apartment and observes a construction site accident. When she attempts to interview witnesses for her summer internship at the Patriot Lodestar, Paige becomes the target of an underground operation. And that’s when things turn bizarre.

Paige had never heard of Bauhaus or the Winter Hexagon, but she is soon on the radar of aggressive thugs who harass her for what the accident victim told her. She gets drawn into a zodiac quest to find the Winter Hexagon Salon before Bauhaus destroys the Boston Public Library, Trinity Church and other significant early American architecture throughout Boston.

Meanwhile, Paige shares her impressive internship perks with her college friends: Thalia, an exchange student from Greece, Melissa and Jill, high-maintenance fashionistas, Sheila, the dancing queen, and Axel, her new love interest. But are all the perks and college antics distractions from what’s really going on around her?

The Winter Hexagon – the sequel to The Eye in the Ceiling – is a fast-paced and humorous thriller that accelerates through Boston and beyond in a race to find the mysterious Winter Hexagon Salon.
