The Black Rubber DressBook - 1997
PRAISE FOR LAUREN HENDERSON AND THE SAM JONES SERIES "Wickedly funny . . ."--New York Times Book Review "Sharply intelligent. . . . Hipper than hip."--Denver Rocky Mountain News Sexy, savvy sculptor-turned-sleuth Sam Jones attracts trouble like she does men. When her sculpture Thing III is unveiled at a swank reception in the atrium of a London bank, a dead body crashes the party. From there, events take a distinctly dangerous turn. Our rubber-clad heroine hardly suspects that in a few days she'll be embroiled in a hot affair with a BMW-driving, Kensington-dwelling stockbroker--the shame of it! Forced to hang out with a pair of spoiled, anorexic rich girls and their unsavory entourage of "friends" as she unravels the facts behind the murder, Sam finds herself unwillingly pulled into a twisted world of drugs, blackmail, and trust funds--one that seems to spell disaster for high society's darlings. By the end of the week even the usually tough-as-nails Sam is running scared. She needs to get to the bottom of it all--before she turns up dead herself.
