“This entertaining series launch from Lordon (the Sydney Sloane mysteries) introduces Mary
Moody, a “concierge to the rich and the richer” of the Hamptons. Mary uses her law degree,
vast network of acquaintances, and sterling organizational skills to find creative solutions for
her clients’ problems, such as arranging a clam bake for the Spielbergs (yes, those Spielbergs),
snagging Celine Dion to perform on a yacht for a wedding, and breaking up a happy crowd of
drunken revelers and getting their party venue neat and tidy before the unsuspecting
When Corliss Blines, a powerful art rep and gallery owner whose life is based on the principle,
“Screw others before they screw you,” disappears, the only person who seems to care is her
renowned filmmaker friend, Diane Ajam, who hires Mary to find Corliss. Parts of the missing
woman’s body turn up in the dunes, and other murders follow, with Mary becoming a target for
the killer. Distinctive characters (both human and canine) match the twisty plot. Mary’s comic
takes on her rich clients will leave readers eager for more.” (Publisher’s Weekly)
