Regan Reilly -- the smart, saucy sleuth featured in all of Carol Higgins Clark's bestsellers -- is in New York attending a crime conference organized by her celebrity-author mother...and enjoying time with a new beau, Jack "no relation" Reilly. It's not long before trouble finds her: a family friend, Thomas Pilsner -- the president of the Settlers' Club on Gramercy Park -- desperately needs help. Two Settlers are dead, diamonds they were donating to the flagging club have vanished, and Thomas is rapidly becoming the prime suspect on all counts. As sharp as ever, Regan sets about solving the mystery of the disappearing diamonds and dead donors in order to save Thomas' neck...before the real killer finds him.

"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.
