Series: Amanda Pepper
Aristocratic Philadelphia natives may think the bluest blood in America flows through their veins, but sometimes outsiders with large fortunes can buy their way into this privileged company. For English teacher Amanda Pepper, the champagne gala on behalf of Philly Prep's library is a night to remember. After all, it is her introduction to ultrarich society - an evening so extravagant that nothing can tarnish the party .. not even a group of protesters outside burning the host in effigy. But Amanda senses deeper trouble, and her intuition is right on target. The Moral Ecologists, who vehemently feel that "reading pollutes the mind," will do anything to advance their agenda. And Amanda's new affluent acquaintances prove to be just as deceitful and violent - as she learns firsthand that the bluest blood bleeds just as red. Especially with murder.
