After a murder at the Plaza, a society columnist races to save a model's life A daytime fashion show at the Plaza Hotel attracts the most beautiful, cynical, and useless people that New York society has to offer. Swimming among them is A. C. James, who has been making enemies on the Upper East Side ever since trading in his life as a war correspondent to become the most vicious society columnist in the city. A notorious flirt, James spends the fashion show eying Camilla Santee, a stunning blonde. He is walking with her down the Plaza steps when a motorcyclist stops, draws a gun, and fires. Camilla survives. The model behind her does not. The bullet was intended for Camilla—not to kill her, but to warn her. The gunman is her stepbrother, just one of her mad relations who is desperate to get her out of the way. To save this beauty from her family, James must risk everything he has.
