Description

Bailey Weggins, the Manhattan-based thirtysomething true-crime journalist, is enjoying her regular gig at Buzz, a leading celebrity magazine, getting freelance work, and hoping her first book will garner attention. In the love department, she's finally back in the game with her recently-turned-exclusive boyfriend, Beau Regan. When Beau heads out of town one early December weekend, Bailey accepts an invitation from her office friend to a music mogul's house in the country, hoping for a fun, relaxing getaway.

But a weird tension settles over the houseguests a glamorous crowd that includes the famously thin supermodel Devon Barr. So when Devon's lifeless body is found in her bed, Bailey immediately suspects foul play: she can't stop thinking of the day before, when a frightened Devon pleaded, "I have to get out of here. . . . It's not safe for me." When Bailey starts to nose around, she finds herself a moving target running closer to the truth and straight into danger.
