Denver Jones is a hotshot twenty-something attorney working in L.A. Carolyn Henderson is P.A to a powerful and very married Senator in Washington with whom she is having an affair. And Annabelle Maestro - daughter of two movie stars - has carved out a career for herself in New York, with the help of her cocaine addicted boyfriend, as the madame of choice for discerning famous men. Then there is Bobby Santangelo Stanislopolous, the Kennedyesque son of Lucky Santangelo. Back in the day he went to high school with Denver, Carolyn and Annabelle.

When Annabelle's mother is found shot to death in her Beverly Hills mansion, the friends are thrown together, and secrets from the past have a way of coming back to haunt them …

Jackie Collins has been called a “raunchy moralist” by the director Louis Malle and “Hollywood’s own Marcel Proust” by Vanity Fair. With over 500 million copies of her books sold in more than forty countries, and with thirty-two New York Times bestsellers to her credit, she is one of the world’s top-selling novelists. Six of her novels have been adapted for film or TV. Collins was awarded an OBE (Order of the British Empire) by the Queen of England in 2013 for her services to literature and charity. When accepting the honor she said to the Queen, “Not bad for a school drop-out”—a revelation capturing her belief that both passion and determination can lead to big dreams coming true. She lived in Beverly Hills where she had a front row seat to the lives she so accurately captured in her compulsive plotlines. She was a creative force, a trailblazer for women in fiction, and in her own words “a kick-ass writer!” Her fascinating life as a writer and icon is explored in the CNN Films documentary Lady Boss: The Jackie Collins Story.
