    Elegant Kate, walking a tightrope over an abyss of lies...sensitive, sensible, self-contained Cecie...Ginger, the heiress, sexy, vibrant, richer than sin...and poor, hopeless, brilliant Fig. They came together as sorority sisters on a Southern campus in the '60s. Four young women bound by rare, blinding early friendship, they spent two idyllic spring breaks at Nags Head, North Carolina, the isolated strip of barrier islands where grand old weather-beaten houses perch defiantly on the edge of a storm-tossed sea.

    Blending tightly plotted mysteries with healthy doses of zesty fun, Chloe Green's acclaimed Dallas O'Connor series is a hit with both critics and readers. When Dallas is whisked to the Caribbean to whip up a style for a new all-girl band, the local priestess scoffs that Dallas wears "de face of death." But the scenery is too lush and the drinks are too many for Dallas to care. That is, until a dead body spoils the sand on the pristine beach.
