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. 

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.
