Paige Turner's skills as a true crime reporter for Daring Detective magazine have earned her an intriguing job opportunity. Sabrina Stanhope of Gramercy Park wants her to look into the murder of Virginia Pratt--a young secretary whose naked body was found bound and gagged under a pile of autumn leaves in Central Park. Sabrina wants the murderer exposed, but she insists that Paige keep her exclusive investigation off the record and out of the pages of Daring Detective. Why the need for such secrecy? Because Virginia was more than a secretary--she worked nights as a high priced call girl in Sabrina's employ. Should word get out, the resulting scandal would be devastating, not only to Sabrina's hush-hush enterprise, but to some of Manhattan's wealthiest movers and shakers. Now, Paige must become a daring detective herself--even though it means going undercover to entice the interest of a sadistic killer...
