Description
A serial killer is on the loose in Washington, D.C. The latest female victim has just been found in Georgetown, the social heart of the nation's capitol. That's how Reven Lynch, a well brought up society insider, meets George Gunner, a canny detective with the style of a hip-hop star. Gunner is convinced that the killer is a society big shot hiding in plain sight, protected by his wealth and social veneer. But Gunner is at sea in the social world; so he enlists Reven's aid as a confidential informant to help him understand more about this rarified world of embassy dinners and symphony balls. Reven agrees to help the detective, only to discover that he believes her boyfriend may be the murderer.

display_description When the latest victim of the "Beltway Basher" is found in the woods of Montrose Park, Reven Lynch's favorite jogging spot, her crime-loving antenna goes up. The murder makes Reven and her best friend, Violet Bolton, reconsider their running route-but that's not the only change in Reven's routine. Her chic Georgetown neighborhood isn't accustomed to brutal slayings, and when the smooth, enigmatic Detective Gunner shows up in her antique shop, asking pointed questions, Reven's left wondering how close to home the killings are. Gunner is convinced the murderer is a society bigshot hiding in plain sight. But he is out of his element in the rarefied world of embassy dinners and symphony balls, and Reven is perfectly positioned to feed him the inside information he needs. She throws herself into her role as the detective's "ersatz Mata Hari," only to discover that the prominent skirt-chasing businessman for whom she's fallen tops Gunner's shortlist of suspects. And that's not the half of it: a philanthropic bombshell named Cynthia Rinehart has taken the city by storm, and Violet's steady marriage is suddenly encountering some major turbulence. . . . During the course of the investigation, the social world will unravel, an old friendship will be put to the test, scandalous secrets will be unleashed, and Reven will discover that nothing old or new, in high culture or low life, is what it appears. A riveting tale of murder, money, and high society, set in the glamorous, politics-fueled world of the nation's capital, Mortal Friends delivers another "killer read" (People).
