Regan Reilly is in New York to attend a crime conference organized by her celebrity-author mother. A friend, Thomas Pilsner-the frenetic president of the Settlers' Club on Gramercy Park-calls Regan, desperately pleading for help. Thomas is distraught over the sudden suspicious deaths of two members of the Settler's Club. The men had promised to donate a cache of valuable diamonds to save the Club. But now the diamonds re gone, the men are dead, and Thomas is a mess. He fears the police will suspect he is at the heart of both mysteries, and worse yet, he'll lose his job. Enter Regan. Who better than the star of Decked, Snagged, Iced, and Twanged to solve the mystery of the missing diamonds and the suspicious deaths? Who better to contend with quirky characterslike Lydia Sevatura, the self-styled "Princess of Love" who operates a dating service and her butler, Maldwin Feckles, who has just opened up the first school of butlering in New York City? And who better than Carol Higgins Clark whose sparkling, canny prose keeps listeners guessing to the end "who done it"? Fleeced is a witty pportrait of modern urban life, and proves once again that Carol Higgins Clark is a uniquely talented writer.

"A couple of old card-playing buddies have just decided to donate four million dollars worth of diamonds to their gentlemen's club when both of them die the same day. Private detective Regan Reilly must find out whether they were murdered and by whom, and locate the precious gems. Laura Hicks's deft touch balances a light tale full of misadventure and malapropisms. Clark's skill at creating comedic characters with their own quirky souls gives Hicks plenty of material to work with. The club's beleaguered manager and his old-fashioned girlfriend; an aging, almost successful actress; the chatty club housekeeper; a smarmy movie producer; a ditzy dating service director; convincing con artists; and an aspiring builder of a butler academy all receive hilarious characterization.
