Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Funny and Funny!!!"

    What a great book to keep you entertained, yet engaged as each chapter builds its mysterious cliff hanger. The narrator is so perfect for the story. She is articulate and has the right tone for each character. Bravo on this selection.

    Witty, funny, engaging, light mystery....what more could I ask for!

    "I loved it!"

    This book was just great fun. The reader was wonderful, slipping easily in and out of characters and the mystery element kept me going. Jane Stanton Hitchcock has a real feel for upper crust New York society, the older money, the jockeying for position. If it was not a perfectly constructed tale, it was one of those times you really didn't care because the ride was so fun. I'm getting another of her books now.

    "Loved this book!"

    This book got me hooked on reading all the rest of Jane Stanton Hitchcock's books. I certainly don't fly in the high society world that Jo Slater does, and I have no idea how true it is, but I found the characters engaging and the suspense intriguing. Barbara Rosenblatt is an entertaining reader.

    "entertaining summer listen"

    Sassy, funny entertatining and suspenseful, this high-society mystery-thriller will keep you interested without demanding too much concentration. Perfect for road trips, poolside or cardio. Long, but not boring at all.

    "Hooked:"

    I thought that this was an excellent read. However, as the story unfolded it got even better. I was in a trance! I could not stop listening. Every moment was exciting. I highly recommend, it is worth it.

    I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.

    "Worth it!"

    This is a modern mystery novel that is much better than most. This is not a classic, but the writer avoids about every pitfall that I find annoying and distracting in this genre. It was a very good, enjoyable read. The narrator is a witty, interesting, and believable character. This is not a thrill ride, but an enjoyable cart ride, with just a bit of tension and quite a lot of humor. The reader was excellent, adding to my enjoyment.

    "Neat Story"

    i though it was a classy story involving a good mystery and a glance into the realm of the 'upper crust' cast of characters with their 'behind the facade' personalities, issues & behaviors. Frankly i hope Mrs. Hitchcock will write many more and have them all narrated again by my favorite voice, Ms. Rosenblat.

    "One Classy Author"

    I read Ms. Hitchcock's most recent book, Mortal Friends, first and enjoyed it so much that I went back and read all of her books. This book follows Social Crimes and it's best -- but not necessary -- to read that before One Dangerous Lady. I loved learning about the New York social scene, which is presented in a way that isn't all about designer labels and wretched excess. Rather, there is much focus on eleemosynary activities. The murder mystery has myriad twists and turns, keeping the reader up late at night turning pages. The characters are very well-developed and I really cared what happened to most of them.

    "Better Then Expected!"

    It took about an hour of listening to this book before I was hooked! From then on I was anxious to get back to it ane chose every opportunity to do so. I particularly enjoyed Betty and her wry sense of humor. The narration was superb....download it.......you won't be disapointed!

    "One Twisted Lady"

    A good listen and a good story. The characters are colorfully drawn and there are times you want to scream at the good guys - 'look out, she's setting you up'. There are enough turns that the ending isn't predictable. I will read the authors other stores and hope she writes more books about Jo Slater's (and her crazy friends Betty and June) adventures.
