As such things are measured in Washington, Denise Burke has everything a woman of wit could want: two hip kids able to look after themselves; a marriage constructed to allow maximum mutual leeway with a husband smack in the center of Clinton's inner circle; and a high-profile lover. Plus, she's a best-selling author of several true crime books. But when death strikes close to home, Denise becomes a woman with a big-time problem.
