CLEVERLY REVEALING PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER... "An edgy page-turner that pulls the reader into a world where image is everything and murder is all about image. Great start to a new series " - Erika Chase, Author of The Ashton Corners Book Club Mysteries Philadelphia image consultant Allison Campbell is not your typical detective. She's more familiar with the rules of etiquette than the rules of evidence, prefers three-inch Manolos to comfy flats and relates to Dear Abby, not Judge Judy. When Allison's latest Main Line client, the fifteen-year-old Goth daughter of a White House hopeful, is accused of the ritualistic murder of a local divorce attorney, Allison fights to prove her client's innocence when no one else will. But in a place where image is everything, the ability to distinguish the truth from the facade may be the only thing that keeps Allison alive.
