No one brings alive the intrigues of the champagne set like Jane Stanton Hitchcock. Now Jo Slater, the wily heroine of her bestselling novel Social Crimes, returns in a dazzling new story of passion, money, and murder.

Jo Slater has it all. The queen of Manhattan society, she has dealt successfully with a tricky period in which she lost her husband, her fortune, and her reputation. But she bounced back, and now, newly single in the greatest city in the world, there is not a cloud in the sky.

Then Russell Cole, an old friend just married to a much younger woman, goes missing while yachting in Barbados. His wife, Carla, tries to befriend Jo, but Jo is suspicious. Carla’s past is murky, and now, with her billionaire husband’s money at her disposal, she seems set on conquering the highest level of New York’s social scene. Suddenly, those who oppose her start dying off, and Jo decides to take matters into her own hands.

Another set of secrets from the gilded world of New York society is revealed in a unique blend of wicked social satire combined with a page-turning mystery.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 2/14/2014

    " With humor and panache, author Hitchcock concocts a devious, convoluted plot in which not one, but two truly dangerous ladies play a deadly game of cat and mouse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine | 1/25/2014

    " A very intersing look at women and too much money. A fun book, well written with lots of fluff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 B | 1/20/2014

    " The return of Jo Slater to New York and life with her upper crust NYC pals. As funny as the first one "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meghan | 1/19/2014

    " This book was not good. It didn't keep my attention and it wasn't entertaining at all. Plus the author isn't good, she apparently doesn't have capable editors because I found a lot of mistakes. I figured the story out from the beginning and wasn't shocked by any of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/18/2014

    " Really good follow up to Social Crimes. It's not necessary to read the first before this one. There are a few mentions of the previous novel, but this is a stand alone novel. Very good - and well worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Irvin Kelly | 1/12/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 12/5/2013

    " Any novel that starts with two hungover ladies is good in my book. At times, the novel seemed to get bogged down talking about NYC society but overall it was a great read. I loved the snark! "
