A MASSACRE OF ELITES
Behind the closed doors of San Francisco's grandest mansions, beautiful people party the nights away in a hedonistic haze of money, drugs, drink and sex. But the rich and famous aren't the only ones with the keys to these most exclusive of addresses. Someone else is intent on crashing the party.
A rock star, a fashion designer, a software tycoon and a millionaire heiress. All glamorous, stunningly attractive, and incredibly rich. All dead.
All murdered. All of them Detective Lindsay Boxer's problem.
A FORGOTTEN MURDER
But the frantic media attention on the case distracts from the murder of a local street hero, 'Bagman Jesus'.
Only intrepid reporter Cindy Thomas, a member of the Women's Murder Club, is on the case. The victim was celebrated across the city for his selfless work with the homeless. Who would want to kill him? Could the down-and-out Samaritan have been hiding a dark secret?
A TICKING CLOCK
The cases demand the attention of the whole Women's Murder Club.
Roping in tough-as-nails attorney Yuki and compassionate medical examiner Claire, Lindsay and Cindy race to solve the case before the killer strikes again - but tensions are running high, and the strain threatens to tear the Women's Murder Club apart for good.
