An Agatha Award-Winning Author
When the body of reality TV star Desiree Pierce is found the morning after her 25th birthday party, the police and the media are quick to declare her death an overdose. Desiree's half-sister Lena Scott knows that can't be the case. A graduate student at Columbia, Lena has spent the past decade forging her own path, but some facts about Desiree just couldn't have changed since their childhood. Despite the bitter truth that the two haven't spoken in two years, torn apart by Desiree's partying and by their father, Mel, Lena becomes determined to find justice for her sister, even if it means untangling her family's darkest secrets - or ending up dead herself.
