Format: Paperback
I enjoyed this book when I needed an escape book to take on a cruise this last Christmas holiday. This was so Dunne and when I was finished I knew that this would be one of the last books I will read by him. I still have the latest one to read and then that will be it - I will have read them and loved them all. I will miss Mr. Dunne when I need a good read on holiday.

Format: Paperback
The lives of the High Society rich in New York are shaken by the arrival of a nouveau riche husband and wife determined to fit in. The wife however, has a secret which she shares with a famous author struggling to deal with the murder of his daughter, some years earlier.

A pacy read, Dunne obviously knows his stuff, the people, the attitude. The plot is also good, the AIDS strand could be really cliched but is nicely underplayed. A little dry in places and overall it feels like the book could have done with a good polish. It's a little episodic in places and it doesn't always hang together. However, the characters are well drawn and it brings to life a time when old money met with new money. A good read, not particularly trashy, but not too worthy. This was also made into a mini-series starring Ben Gazzara, Connie Selleca from tv's 'Hotel' and Jean Simmons.
