The 80th birthday party of Miranda Richards, an art-world icon, boasts the party of the summer at her exclusive mansion on Long Island. Old resentments and convoluted relationships bubble to the surface as an eclectic, A-list cast of characters celebrate at a Masked Ball. The luxurious trappings of success, however, don't hinder the agenda of an invited guest with a score to settle. Friends and family are left to wonder ... will I be next? Follow Detective Steele as he sifts through the evidence before the murderer strikes again.
Simone Messier arrived at Miranda's house with a squeal of tires and a shower of gravel. That was how she lived her life: fast, dramatic, and unconventional. And it was the secret to her success as the muse to one of the top fashion designers in Paris, John Paul Gaultier. She lived her life on the cutting - and liked it there.
