LOS ANGELES TIMES
Kate, Jessie, Sarah, Christine. Four women connected by briliance, talent, and secrets in the wealth, luxury, and privilege of Palm Beach. The knot of lies and deceptions perpetrated over the years now gets tangled tighter and tighter, threatening to strangle them all. Each has a hidden agenda, each has something to hide, and each thrives under a facade of decency. Until they collide, with men and with each other, in a world where lust dominates love, reality crushes dreams, and money reigns supreme. And facades must be maintained at all cost....
Enjoyed meeting the hard-working, well-bred citizens of Palm Beach in the real-life William Kennedy Smith trial? Want to read even more about these delightful people? Hard-working, well-bred Palm Beach insider and novelist Pulitzer (The Prize Pulitzer, Twins) weaves her imagination together with the tabloid headlines for a tale of four young women let loose in the city of Teddy's Sexy Romp. Altruistic West Palm Beach psychic and police consultant Maria (psychics can't be bothered with surnames) is troubled by the dark visions that swirl whenever she turns her mystical attention to the four young ladies who seek her vision regularly after lunch--women who have bitten off rather more of Palm Beach life than they can chew. Something dreadful is going to happen to either ex-top-of- the-line London prostitute Christine, ex-hit-and-run driver and world-class cocaine-consumer Sarah, ex-journalist and budding plagiarist Kate, or ex-incest and spouse-abuse victim and current adulteress Jessica--but Madame Maria is afraid to look too closely into the too-alarming future to see the details of the impending doom. Pulitzer, however, is not afraid to look too closely into the ever so dramatic pasts of these tanned and trim chums who are being squeezed by the cruel social machinery of Exclusive, Rich, Powerful, Ultradesirable Palm Beach, Florida. Just a hint without giving away the powerful ending: Someone Will Die. O Tempora! O Mores! Au Bar! -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
