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.
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.
