(From the publisher):
Things are going great for the Blackbirds. Columnist Nora is still dating mobster's son Michael Abruzzo, Emma's recovering nicely in a clinic for the rich and infamous, and Libby's pleased about her new career with Potions and Passions, a company that keeps its customers very satisfied. Best of all, nobody in Nora's vicinity has been knocked off lately.
Nora's next journalistic assignment: cover the unveiling of the most miraculous bra in fashion history. But before Nora can hand in her uplifting story, her boss is discovered shot execution-style and trussed up in expensive panty hose - an Abruzzo family trademark.
Now it's up to Nora to find the killer before her innocent lover takes the rap. That means shadowing the most glamorous suspects in Philadelphia - including a bad-boy designer, a former child star, a neurotic neat freak, a high-strung ad exec, and a pair of luscious twin models on the rise.
