From Library Journal: "After five years abroad, news correspondent Beecher Stowe returns to the family home in tony East Hampton to finish a book on terrorism. However, when wealthy Hannah Cutting, a controversial and much-hated neighbor, is found murdered on the beach, Stowe's new boss at Parade wants a juicy story. Just as Stowe catches wind of Hannah's "lost" tell-it-all autobiography, her publisher dispatches delectable competition in the form of a beautiful and aristocratic editor. Dry humor, literate tone, acid observation, and lots of name-dropping help characterize the village and its people. From a weekly columnist for Parade and Ad Age and the author of several successful novels...for most collections." Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc.
This is a book my Mother thought I would enjoy reading, I found that my girlfriend enjoyed it more.
