Working on a story about the anniversary of a celebrity thrift shop, TV producer Sonya Iverson finds herself caught up in the Woodruff family's disintegration.  Hilda Woodruff, who manages the family's magazine empire, is locked in a bitter feud with her sisters, Ellin and Julia, over which of their sons should succeed her as head of the family.
 
When the family friend who runs the thrift shop is murdered, her body is found by volunteer Kathryn Petite--who is Hilda Woodruff's secret daughter, placed for adoption when Hilda was a teenager.  Hilda refuses to meet this specter from her past, so Kathryn is volunteering at the thrift shop in an attempt to get close to her birth family.  Sonya investigates the murder, annoying the charming NYPD detective assigned to the case.  But although Sonya's connection to the family lets her understand clues others miss, she is unable to prevent another murder. 
 
In the end, Sonya's nose for news ferrets out the Woodruff family's darkest secrets…and the identity if the killer in their midst.

Elsa Klensch, former host of CNN's "Style with Elsa Klensch," has an insider's knowledge of the fashion industry's most flamboyant personalities coupled with an outsider's sharp-eyed objectivity.

In Live at 10, Dead at 10:15, Klensch brilliantly evokes the worlds of fashion and design through the eyes of Sonya Iverson, ambitious Midwesterner striving to succeed in New York City. As a producer for the network newsmagazine "The Donna Fuller Show," Sonya is frustrated at always having to work on "fluff"-but she never expected her big break to come in the middle of the annual American Fashion Awards dinner.
Sonya steps into the elegant powder room of New York City's 42nd Street Library to discover a just-out-of-rehab supermodel clutching what appears to be a bloody dagger and standing over the body of the glamorous wife of a fashion industry mogul. Sonya's first call is to the newsroom; the police come second.

The dead woman, Harriett Franklin, was widely admired for her charitable work but nearly universally disliked, Sonya discovers as she interviews clothing designers, models, fashion magazine editors, and industry bigwigs. Harriett was scheming and manipulative, determined to have her way in everything from naming the new perfume being developed by the House of Franklin to keeping her Down Syndrome son in a treatment facility far from the spotlight.

Suspects abound. Was the killer the supermodel, whose comeback Harriett was threatening to derail? The internationally-renowned designer recently fired at Harriett's bidding? The fashion magazine editor Harriett first bribed and then blackmailed? Or even Harriett's long-suffering husband, who may have finally had all he could take of his shrewish wife?

Eager to break this career-making story, Sonya quickly learns many dark secrets about the seamy underside of the fashion industry. Sonya's next interview might be her last . . . .

Fresh from solving the murder of a fashion magnate’s wife in Live at 10:00, Dead at 10:15, TV newsmagazine producer Sonya Iverson returns in Shooting Script, another luxurious thriller from Elsa Klensch.
Once again working on a "puff piece," this time about the opening of a new luxury spa headed by the third and youngest wife of Errol Swanson, former head of Sonya’s own network, Sonya decides to put her frustration to good use. She’s an investigative reporter—so she’ll investigate.
And there’s plenty of dirt to dig. For one thing, the head honchos at the network all seem scared of Errol—even Donna Fuller, Sonya’s boss and a crusading journalist, treads softly where Errol is concerned. Rumors claim that Donna and Errol had an affair, and Errol’s made a heavy-handed pass at Sonya.
Then there are the wives. Wife #1, Joan, is eating herself to death and trying desperately to wrest control of her family toy business away from her supposedly retired ex-husband. Craig, her son with Errol, disappeared a decade ago and is presumed dead; his twin sister, Christy, is mentally and emotionally unstable and has been the family scapegoat for years.
Wife #2, Margot, is a successful fashion designer who still lives in fear of Errol’s notoriously violent temper. He’s got his hooks into her business too, and the loans are due. Margot brings a gun to the spa, to protect herself and her charming son, Tomas. Tomas, a budding fashion model, wants his father to accept him, but his homosexuality disgusts Errol, and the two men have never had a civil conversation.
Wife #3, Lara, seems to be full of love and human kindness. She’s engineered a family reunion along with the spa opening in an attempt to reconcile her husband with his wives and children before her own baby is born. Learning of Errol’s past cruelties, Lara does her best to soften her hard-headed husband, but his unusual sexual demands have begun to wear on her soul. Lara has secrets of her own, a dark past that may soon be exposed.
Rounding out the family gathering are Errol’s Aunt Tracey, who knows where the bodies are buried—perhaps literally—and Sonya’s fellow reporter Frank O’Neill, who has a deeply personal connection to Lara and who is preparing a book-length expose of Errol Swanson.
When Errol is found, shot to death while tied to the bed he and Lara shared, the morning after a family dinner marked by vituperation and violence, local police have an abundance of suspects. But Sonya is already several steps ahead of the official investigation. She’s determined to find out who killed the mogul . . . and get her scoop on the air.

Elsa Klensch, host of the groundbreaking CNN news magazine, Style with Elsa Klensch, is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Style with Elsa Klensch. When she retired from television, Elsa took with her many secrets, stories she'd never been able to tell...until now in The Third Sin.

Television producer Sonya Iverson has a habit of stumbling over dead bodies. Wade Bruckheimer decides to sell a fabulous diamond that once belonged to his late mother. He needs money, and selling the Braganza seems the best way of getting it. His stepmother, Irina, is furious—that diamond is her ticket to every A-list party in New York. A few days before the sale, Wade is found dead in his luxurious apartment.

Sonya was already working on a story about the diamond and immediately begins to cover the murder, to the dismay of her boyfriend, who fears that Sonya is putting herself in danger. Irina Bruckheimer is the first, but not the last, suspect. Esperanza’s family want the Braganza back. There are long-standing rumors that Wade’s high-maintenance wife is having an affair. Only Sonya, with her outsider’s viewpoint, can sort through Wade Bruckheimer’s life and find his killer.
