Synopses & Reviews
Murder was never my goal in life. I'm a very sentimental person at heart. I cry in old movies. I love animals and children. So if anyone had told me five years ago that I could have willfully and with malice aforethought killed a fellow human being, I would have said they were crazy. But life has surprises in store for all of us... Jo Slater is a grand dame of New York society; some say the grandest. But she is about to be dethroned. Her wealthy husband of twenty years dies under strange circumstances and leaves his entire fortune to a mysterious French countess. Sliding down the social ladder faster than you can say "Versace," Jo discovers she has been the victim of a plot and decides to get some very sweet revenge. Your days are numbered, Countess!
Hitchcock's deliciously dark and witty "New York Times" bestseller about social climbing and murder. When her husband Lucius dies of a heart attack under sordid circumstances, socialite Jo Slater is shocked to learn that he has left his sizable estate to a mysterious French countess.
