Summary (From the publisher):

Movie producer Sy Spencer, one of the premier summer residents of the Hamptons, Long Island's oh-so-fashionable beach resort for everyone who is anyone, has hosted his last power clambake, thanks to whoever shot him dead beside his oceanfront pool.

Heading the investigation is Hamptons native Steve Brady. His prime suspect is Sy's ex-wife Bonnie, a strangely appealing and energetic woman both in and out of bed. As the case against Bonnie builds, so does Brady's obsession with her. Before long, he's laying the case and his career on the line for her, ignoring all the rules, all the evidence, and all common sense.
