For the four glamorous daughters of Lord Oswald Balcon, money can buy anything. From Fendi handbags to Ivy League educations, they live in a world of designer labels and unrestricted opulence — their father's money and aristocratic status, coupled with their dazzling good looks, bought them every opportunity and advantage. They are beautiful, blond, and barely thirty, and the world is their luxury playground.

Venetia, the sophisticated interior designer, has booming professional success but is desperate for a child and an escape from a loveless marriage. Camilla, the rising political star, is too brilliant and ambitious for any of her unworthy lovers to handle. Sweet yet savvy Cate is living out her ultimate dream, launching her own magazine, with an all-too-handsome business partner. The baby of the family, Serena, is one of the country's most beautiful actresses, on the cusp of international stardom, but her party-girl lifestyle is bringing about more scandal than success.

The girls are the darlings of the London paparazzi, but when Lord Balcon turns up dead, the shadow of suspicion falls on his four daughters. A jealous tyrant, Daddy has tried to bring his daughters down all their lives. These four women — at the top of their careers in show business, publishing, interior design, and politics — must face an awful accusation, and each other, as they try to discover the truth that lies beneath the glossy surface of their lives. The facade of the Balcon family hides a web of deceit and betrayal, in which a thirty-year-old secret lurks, threatening to destroy them all.

From the sun-drenched beaches of the Caribbean to Manhattan's elite society circuit, from the exclusive fashion houses of Milan to the star-studded streets of Cannes, the Balcon sisters play out their lives in a whirl of glitz and the ultra chic. But as tragedy and danger stalk every one of them, the scene is set for a stunning climax.

I expected more of a murder mystery, but it was more about family relationships and spent a lot of time jumping from one daughter to another. Not a lot of continuity. A lot of disfunction in the characters.

When I purchased this book I thought it would be a waste of money since I generally read science fiction books. Let's just say Tasmina Perry is an excellant detailed writer. This fiction book, full of drama, humor and SEX ended up being a break from science fiction. I have never read a book and got so horny from just reading the words on the page. Wow!

I read this book while in Malloca Spain for two months. I could not put the book down, and spent many nights going to bed at four a.m. I wanted it to go on; felt totally engaged, and interested in the depth and shallowness, of the characters. Yes, an oxymoron, but an interesting one. That is why I would give this book 5 stars in all categories.

Overall the book was a great read. I liked how Tasmina Perry wrote in a manner that wanted me to keep turning the pages. I liked how the descriptions of the characters were vivid. I also liked the even mix of drama, emotion, romance and interesting plot Tasmina Perry put into this book. Too much drama and romance would have easily made this book a knock of a Beverly Hills 90210 episode. The emotion in the story line led to me being able to identify with each character. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in reading about life. This story could have easily been non-fiction.
