Baker & Taylor
When poison-pen columnist Amanda Dart herself becomes the victim of an anonymous gossipmonger, she enlists the help of New York P.I. Stone Barrington to uncover the culprit, someone out to expose the peccadilloes of other influential gossip columnists as well

Blackwell North Amer
Feared and disliked for both her poison pen and ice-queen persona, bicoastal gossip columnist Amanda Dart finds the tables have turned. The unwitting victim of an anonymous gossipmonger who is faxing to national opinion makers an outrageous scandal sheet revealing the details of her ongoing indiscretions with a nationally known takeover artist, Amanda enlists the help of New York lawyer and investigator Stone Barrington to learn the identity of the faxer. Everybody is a suspect in the world of tabloid journalism. As the faxes grow more scathing and begin to expose the peccadilloes of not only Amanda but other members of the gossip community, Barrington winds up with more leads than he can handle and an employer who is about to take matters dangerously into her own hands. The world of gossip is turned on its head. It becomes clear to Stone that even the most respected members of the social scene will stop at nothing - even murder - to clear their names.

Dirt has good character development and interesting twists and turns; a fun read. Ending is a little strange tho; it's like going from reading a thriller that turns into a romance novel...

A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: Better than the first, this second book in this series was excellent
