The small, exclusive Massachusetts island of Margaret’s Harbor gets its fifteen minutes of fame when aging teen stars Arrow Normand and Marcey Mandret pay a visit to local celebrity heiress, Kendra Rhode. The girls’ drunken, disorderly behavior is being eaten up by the press...until an even bigger media storm erupts.

During a blizzard, Arrrow finds herself staggering around town, covered in blood and incoherently drunk. Meanwhile, her actor-boyfriend has been found shot dead in the front seat of a crashed truck. Now Arrow is cast as the only suspect in the crime—and she can’t remember a thing about the night in question.

Enter former F.B.I. agent Gregor Demarkian, who’s flown in from Philadelphia to review the charges against Arrow. What he finds is a case with little evidence, an insatiable paparazzi, and a mare’s nest of motives in what may be the most confusing, twisted role of Demarkian’s lifetime.

“A stellar whodunit.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

The small, exclusive Massachusetts island of Margaret’s Harbor gets its fifteen minutes of fame when aging teen stars Arrow Normand and Marcey Mandret pay a visit to local celebrity heiress, Kendra Rhode. The girls’ drunken, disorderly behavior is being eaten up by the press...until an even bigger media storm erupts.

Cheating at Solitaire has a sharply satirical edge as it takes on the cult of celebrity.”—Boston Globe

During a blizzard, Arrrow finds herself staggering around town, covered in blood and incoherently drunk. Meanwhile, her actor-boyfriend has been found shot dead in the front seat of a crashed truck. Now Arrow is cast as the only suspect in the crime—and she can’t remember a thing about the night in question.

“A sly...indictment of the cult of celebrity. Read this and liberate yourself from Page Six and TMZ.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Enter former F.B.I. agent Gregor Demarkian, who’s flown in from Philadelphia to review the charges against Arrow. What he finds is a case with little evidence, an insatiable paparazzi, and a mare’s nest of motives in what may be the most confusing, twisted role of Demarkian’s lifetime.
