Description

From Jane Stanton Hitchcock, New York Times bestselling author of sophisticated thrillers Trick of the Eye and Social Crimes, comes One Dangerous Lady, a gripping mystery about a socialite's daring investigation into the disappearance of a wealthy art collector.

While in Barbados for a lavish high-society wedding, Jo Slater--once on the brink of social obscurity--is back on top of her game. But when her old friend, Russell Cole, disappears, Jo is convinced he's the victim of foul play--and that the perfectly manicured fingers of his latest wife, Carla, are all over the so-called accident.

Back in Manhattan, Carla's stunningly fast rise up the social ladder adds fuel to Jo's suspicions. And when a mysterious figure from Jo's past returns and tries to bring her down, the Park Avenue set learns that, when crossed, she is one dangerous lady.

Back cover copy

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.
