No one brings alive the intrigues of the champagne set like Jane Stanton Hitchcock. Now Jo Slater, the wily heroine of her best-selling novel Social Crimes, returns in a dazzling new story of passion, money, and murder. Jo is in Barbados, preoccupied by the notion of a new romance with a dashing English lord, when Russell Cole, a fabulously wealthy art collector, disappears from his yacht. Jo suspects that Russell's wife knows a great deal more about her husband's disappearance than she is letting on. Back in New York, Jo discovers that a figure from her own past continues to put her at great risk and that neither the urbane lord nor her missing friend's wife are what they appear to be.

Jo Slater, once the grandest of New York's grandes dames, has made a miraculous comeback from the brink of social obscurity—and is living the good life again.
While in Barbados, as a guest at the most lavish high-society wedding of the year, Jo is contemplating a romance with a dashing British aristocrat when her old friend Russell Cole, a fabulously wealthy art collector, disappears from his yacht. Jo suspects foul play; the perfectly manicured fingers of Russell's latest wife, Carla, are all over the so-called accident.
And back in Manhattan, as Carla climbs the social ladder with astonishing speed and ruthlessness, Jo discovers that a mysterious figure from her own past has resurfaced and seems hell-bent on bringing her down once and for all. But when it comes to the cunning manipulation of the Park Avenue set, crossing Jo Slater is always a very dangerous endeavor.About the Author:
Jane Stanton Hitchcock has written three previous novels, the best-selling Social Crimes, The Witches' Hammer, and Trick of the Eye, which was nominated for both the Edgar Allen Poe Award and the Hammett Prize as the Best First Novel of the Year. She lives in New York and Washington, D.C.
