This is more I expect a transition book for the series. The plot is interesting - a banker is found dead under Sam's sculpture at his engagement party. There are many layers to the plot, a bunch of red herrings but ultimately the resolution of the plot is fine. Sam gets a little wild and dirty with her banker lover while figuring out who used her art to kill a man. A good instalment of the series. Still fun and quirky although this one tried a little too hard to add a 'Less than Zero' vibe (sex, drug and the high life).
