Atlanta cop Frank Clemons has moved to New York City and become a private detective. His lady love, Karen, an art dealer, has introduced Frank to the world of haute couture, and especially the designer Imalia Cavallo. One of Imalia's assistants, Hannah Karlsberg, is murdered and Frank is hired to find her next of kin in order to get Hannah's body released from the morgue so that she can have a decent burial. In the process Frank learns much about the garment industry and union activism in the 1930s.

As usual, there is somewhat of a surprise ending, however, this one is a bit more predictable.

I really like Cook's writing, and this novel takes off quicker than others. I found the middle chapters especially intriguing.

Be sure to read the Clemons series in order. Start with Sacrificial Ground. (which OPL does not own).
