From the Back Cover:

Cool, sharp, streetwise, Sam Jones attracts trouble like she does men. Finding herself in the midst of a twisted intrigue of blackmail and drug-taking, surrounded by anorexic Sloanes, raucous merchant bankers and a series of very expensive dinners, Sam is in a world not her own; and as the deaths increase she comes to realise that her own life is at risk.
