This novel about the foibles of the rich and famous is set in Washington, D.C., and takes on the White House, a powerful national newspaper, the subject of AIDS, and Judaism, to name but a few of its elaborate backdrops. Sadie Gray is the beautiful widow of the recently assassinated U.S. president; Allison Sterling, a formidable news reporter, is the new national affairs editor for the Washington Daily . These women are adversarially linked through their love of the same man, Desmond Shaw, another powerful media type. The story wends its way through Washington and beyond, finding another love interest in the form of the handsome but inaccessible Dr. Michael Lanzer, head of the National Cancer Institute, who has discovered a new AIDS treatment drug.

This book is not a quick read at 566 pages but an interesting one.
