Michele Martinez, author of the critically acclaimed Most Wanted, which USA Today called "a breakout," brings back savvy, sexy federal prosecutor Melanie Vargas in a new case that pits her against a very clever, very scary killer
In a glittering penthouse high above Park Avenue, two beautiful teenagers, students at an exclusive Manhattan girls' school, lie dead under suspicious circumstances. Feeling pressure from the top to solve the high-profile case fast, Melanie breaks all the rules and goes undercover. Teamed with Dan O'Reilly, a hard-to-resist FBI agent with a talent for making her pulse race, Melanie embarks on a wild chase from the rarefied world of New York's elite private schools to the darkest recesses of the city's nightlife. And, ultimately, into a fight for her life against a devious killer who has no intention of getting caught.

Michele Martinez, a graduate of Harvard University and Stanford Law School, was a federal prosecutor in New York City for eight years. She lives in New Hampshire with her husband and two children.From AudioFile:
Two girls at a tony New York prep school die of an apparent drug overdose, threatening the smarmy headmistress's fundraising plans and her romance with the father of one of the victims. It's up to prosecuting attorney Melanie Vargas to sort things out in the midst of a complicated personal life. Anne Twomey is good at bringing out the shallowness of most of the players (maybe some depth was lost in the abridgment), as well as Vargas's confused emotions. Only a Hispanic janitor and his daughters truly engage the listener's sympathy. If you like suspense that is heavy on action, light on subtlety, this is for you.
