Description


New York Times Bestselling Author of The Invention of Murder

Summer in London--the sun is finally shining, the flowers are in bloom, and life is humming merrily along for book editor Samantha Clair, off to lunch with her old friend, art dealer Aidan Merriam.

Humming merrily until she learns that his partner has just been found dead in their gallery, slumped over his desk with a gun in his hand. Could anything be worse? Oh yes, the police investigation is being led by Detective-Inspector Jake Field, who just happens to be Sam's new boyfriend. And Aidan, who just happens to be Sam's ex-boyfriend, wants her help.

Armed with nothing more than her trusty weapons of satire, cynicism, and a stock of irrelevant information culled from novels, Sam races to find a killer who is determined to find her first in this fast-paced, uproarious novel.
