Summary
Pericles "Perry" Christo is a PI with a past: a former cop who lost his badge and his family when a corruption scandal left him broke and disgraced. When wealthy Upper East Side matron Julia Drusilla summons him one cold February night, he grabs what seems to be a straightforward (and lucrative) case. The socialite is looking for her beautiful, aimless daughter Angelina, who's about to become a very wealthy young woman. But as Perry digs deeper, he discovers there's much more to the lovely "Angel" than meets the eye. Her father, her best friend, and her boyfriends all have agendas of their own. Angel, he soon realizes, may be in grave danger--and if Perry gets too close, he just might be caught in the crossfire. The PI twists and turns down New York's mean streets and along the Hamptons' beaches and back roads, searching for truth during a bitterly cold and gray winter where nothing is as it seems and everyone has something to hide.
