Publisher's Summary

When death shatters the serenity of the exclusive moneyed enclave of Tuxedo Park, New York, Eliza Blake, co-host of KEY to America, is on the scene. While attending a lavish gala at her friends' newly renovated estate, Pentimento, Eliza's host is found dead - a grotesque suicide that is the first act in a macabre and intricately conceived plan to expose sins of the past involving some of the town's most revered citizens.

Determined to find the truth, Eliza and her KEY News colleagues discover that Pentimento holds the key. The glorious mansion is actually a giant "puzzle house", filled with ingenious clues that lead them, one by one, to the victims of a fiendish killer. As Pentimento gives up its secrets, it becomes clear that no amount of wealth or privilege will keep the residents of Tuxedo Park safe. But just when she unearths one final surprise, Eliza comes face to face with a murderer who believes that some puzzles should never be solved.

Enjoyable, easy read

I really like the work of Mary Jane Clark, but found this one a little less exciting than most of her books. I did not like the way in which the victim committed suicide, and was disappointed in the ending. I expected a little more substance.

Dying for Mercy (Unabridged)

Very good and I liked listening to it, especially since it's a long book. I got to listen while driving, while eating and playing games or cleaning. I would recommend this book if you would like books while doing other stuff too.
