Summary:

"No one brings alive the intrigues of the champagne set like Jane Stanton Hitchcock. Now Jo Slater, the wily heroine of her bestselling novel Social Crimes, returns in a dazzling new story of passion, money, and murder.
Jo Slater has it all. The queen of Manhattan society, she has dealt successfully with a tricky period in which she lost her husband, her fortune, and her reputation. But she bounced back, and now, newly single in the greatest city in the world, there is not a cloud in the sky.

Then Russell Cole, an old friend just married to a much younger woman, goes missing while yachting in Barbados. His wife, Carla, tries to befriend Jo, but Jo is suspicious. Carla's past is murky, and now, with her billionaire husband's money at her disposal, she seems set on conquering the highest level of New York's social scene. Suddenly, those who oppose her start dying off and Jo decides to take matters into her own hands.

Another set of secrets from the gilded world of New York society is revealed in a unique blend of wicked social satire combined with a page-turning mystery."

    I really enjoyed this book. Really made my commute easy. At the end, I made up excuses to stay in the car so I could finish it. Recommend!

    What a great story! I was enthralled from the start of CD 1. The book is extremely well written and the reader brings the story to life in a spectacular way. Her skillful use of a variety of accents and voice tones really helps to bring the characters to life. I had become so involved with the characters and their story that it was quite a wrench to have to part from them at the end of the story - a mark of a great book, in my opinion! I am now keen to read other books by the same author.

    I loved this book! It was wonderful and you learned about the "other side of the fence." Rent it, you won't be sorry!

    The author has just the right balance of intrigue and humor to keep you interested but not overwhelmed. Her other books are just as entertaining..
