Wealthy young women are being murdered on Manhattan's exclusive Upper West Side, and the police aren't looking for answers in the right places. Enter Tandy Angel. The first case she cracked was the mystery of her parents' deaths. Now, while she's working to exonerate her brother of his glamorous girlfriend's homicide, she's driven to get involved in the West Side murder spree.
One of the recent victims was a student at Tandy's own elite school. She has a hunch it may be the work of a serial killer, but the NYPD isn't listening to her...and Tandy can't ignore the disturbing fact that she perfectly fits the profile of the killer's targets. Can she untangle the mysteries in time? Or will she be the next victim?
Maxine Paetro is the author of three novels and two works of nonfiction and the coauthor of numerous books with James Patterson. She lives in New York with her husband.
"The complex, clever plot keeps the pages turning as it wends its way to a surprising resolution and several cliffhangers."
"Readers will be drawn inexorably into Tandy's world of paranoia and manipulation as they try to put the pieces together."
