Beecher Stowe couldn't be more pleased than to find himself spending that delicious season between Thanksgiving and Christmas in the Hamptons. On his first weekend back, East Hampton stages its annual ragtag, irresistibly corny, small-townish Santa Claus parade, complete with a high school band and Santa on a flatbed truck. It's an old-fashioned American village Christmas (even if the elves include Spielberg's kids!). Stowe has even convinced his lady friend Alix Dunraven to join him and see the Hamptons without the summer people.

But Beecher and Her Ladyship's plans for an "out of season" frolic are complicated by the puzzling arrival of a small girl who may be named "Susannah" (she uses pseudonyms, she admits), skinny, precocious, and armed with a platinum card. The kid, who turns out to be the child of Dick and Nicole, a wealthy power couple whose bitter divorce has become the stuff of Page Six gossip and legal wrangling before the World Court at The Hague, has been farmed out by her parents to a Swiss convent.

Now, as Christmas nears, Susannah descends on East Hampton intent on spending the holidays with her role model, Martha Stewart, from whom she expects a warm welcome when she presents herself at her front door. The problem? Martha does Christmas at her other home in Westport, Connecticut. As the snow begins to fall, Beecher encounters a forlorn young Susannah sipping Shirley Temples at The Blue Parrot bar.

Can Alix and Beecher possibly salvage Christmas for this little girl lost?

As Another Gorgeous East Hampton season climaxes, a remarkable woman, admired by the millions who know her only through television and her books -- and cordially despised by some of those closest to her -- is found dead on the beach with a stake of privet hedge driven brutally through her heart. Who killed lifestyle guru Hannah Cutting and why? With the rich and famous of the lovely resort village among the suspects, foreign correspondent Beecher Stowe, back home at his family home on Further Lane, traces Hannah's roots while digging for clues. Competing with Stowe is a young book editor dispatched to the scene by Harry Evans of Random House to find and retrieve the tell-all manuscript on which Hannah was working when she died. This is Alix Dunraven, a member in London of Princess Di's set of "Sloane Rangers." Now Stowe and Lady Alix make for an unexpectedly sassy and stylish team as they lead an elegant but deadly romp through the Hamptons, from redneck bars to the Maidstone Country Club, from rich men's estates to the Shinnecock Indian Reservation, from surfer hangouts to the tennis courts, as all the tensions and frictions of America's famous summer playground play themselves out: Old Money vs. New, tree-huggers vs. land developers, Hollywood arrivistes vs. Establishment WASPs. As Alix and Beecher close in on why Hannah died, a great September hurricane comes boiling up the East Coast toward East Hampton's golden beaches and dune-top mansions.
