At long last, the New York Times bestselling author of The Sixes and the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan brings back the sassy crime writer turned amateur sleuth Bailey Weggins in an addictive story involving the mysterious death of a supermodel.

Bailey Weggins, the Manhattan-based thirty-something true-crime journalist, is in a good place. She’s enjoying her regular gig at Buzz, a leading celebrity magazine, getting freelance work, and hoping her first book will garner attention. In the love department, she’s finally back in the game with her recently-turned-exclusive boyfriend, Beau Regan.

When Beau heads out of town one early December weekend, Bailey accepts an invitation from her office friend Jessie to a music mogul’s house in the country, hoping for a fun, relaxing getaway. But a weird tension settles over the houseguests—a glamorous crowd that includes the famously thin supermodel Devon Barr. An impending snowstorm only adds to the unease.

So when Devon’s lifeless body is found in her bed, Bailey immediately suspects foul play: she can’t stop thinking of the day before, when a frightened Devon shivered in the woods and pleaded, “I have to get out of here … It’s not safe for me.” When Bailey starts to nose around, she finds herself a moving target—running closer to the truth and straight into danger.

With her trademark irreverent wit, Bailey is a heroine who keeps us laughing while on the edge of our seats. New and longtime fans alike will devour this eagerly awaited mystery.

    " Loved this book and really all of her books. Super fast read, hard to put down, because I just had to know who the killer was. "

    " Probably the best of Kate White's mysteries. The mystery was fun, the romantic up and downs of our heroine were bland and contrived, set against a New York backdrop of affluence and money that already seems to be fading. Not necessarily in the real sense but the glamorous sense. Maybe I'm tired of clothing labels. But, that said, again it's a good mystery for the winter months. "

    " Modern day version of a country house murder - a group of people, most of whom are connected in some way; snowed in so no-one can leave; knowing that one of the guests is a murderer. Bailey Wiggins is the main character, a true-crime journalist who writes for a trashy celebrity magazine (likely? I don't think so)and keeps investigating until she solves the crime. I didn't have empathy with her character because I found her too pushy but I guess that's a characteristic needed by a journalist like that. I was pleased that by the end of the novel she left the magazine and has gone freelance because it opens up the potential for future stories. Good read. "
