Her corpse would be the hottest news in town. May Laval was as brilliant as a ten-carat diamond - and just as cold. As the calculating ruler of a social set, she influenced generals, politicians, and big businessmen. Slowly and shrewdly, she learned the intimate details of everyone's life and recorded the seamy facts in a diary so as not to forget a single sordid detail. One day, May Laval threatened to publish her diary. Now it's up to PR man Jake Harrison to find out who killed May and - while he's at it - why his wife left him.
