Baker & Taylor Having recently located to the Connecticut gold coast, New York film critic Mitch Berger finds his new life compromised by his state trooper girlfriend's investigation into a movie star's murder for which Mitch and his closest friends are implicated. 15,000 first printing.
Mitch Berger has been accepted at least on the surface by some of the posh families in the small enclave to which he's moved - even his open affair with the beautiful black policewoman is looked upon peaceably. But when a member of the small group of men who gather for early-morning walks is found dead, the subsequent investigation, involving both Mitch and Desiree, opens a very large container of personal evil that has no place in any society.
Blackwell North Amer It's the peak of the tourist season on the Connecticut gold coast. But this is no ordinary July for the picture-perfect village of Dorset - or for transplanted New York film critic Mitch Berger and his alluring love, resident State Trooper Desiree Mitry. When famous - and combustible - movie star Tito Molino plunges to his death from a cliff just outside town, Mitry's investigation - along with a ravenous celebrity press corps and gawkers by the thousands - threatens to reveal secrets too terrible to imagine. Events are made even worse when the investigation implicates Mitch and Desiree's close friends, and possibly even Mitch himself.
