A Sonya Iverson Novel

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Working on a story about the anniversary of a celebrity thrift shop, TV producer Sonya Iverson finds herself caught up in the Woodruff family's disintegration. Hilda Woodruff, who manages the family's magazine empire, is locked in a bitter feud with her sisters, Ellin and Julia, over which of their sons should succeed her as head of the family.

When the family friend who runs the thrift shop is murdered, her body is found by volunteer Kathryn Petite—who is Hilda Woodruff's secret daughter, placed for adoption when Hilda was a teenager. Hilda refuses to meet this specter from her past, so Kathryn is volunteering at the thrift shop in an attempt to get close to her birth family. Sonya investigates the murder, annoying the charming NYPD detective assigned to the case. But although Sonya's connection to the family lets her understand clues others miss, she is unable to prevent another murder.

In the end, Sonya's nose for news ferrets out the Woodruff family's darkest secrets…and the identity if the killer in their midst.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 03, 2007 – The third novel to feature television producer and accidental sleuth Sonya Iverson (who appeared last in 2006's Shooting Script) promises A-list celebrity scandal and style, but delivers only graying socialites and secondhand couture. Sonya is assigned to cover the 40th anniversary of Woody's, a high-end thrift store, for The Donna Fuller Show. Opened in the 1950s by Anthea Woodruff, wife of New York publishing magnate James Woodruff, the store is now run by her three daughters Hilda, Julia and Ellin, and doting confidante Gussie Ford. The fluff piece unfolds into a hard news lead when Gussie turns up murdered in the shop days before the anniversary gala. Sonya probes into the dirty little secrets of the Woodruff family while arrogance, addiction and treachery come into full view. Klensch's prose lacks the brio to invigorate the trite controversy at the heart of the novel. Her celebrity characters are too thinly drawn, their motives too obviously vapid, and so the novel leaves unanswered that first question of every good news story: why do we care?
