From the Blurb:

Danielle (Dani) O'Rourke's gala evening at the Devor Museum ends in catastrophe when the body of a young artist plummets from her office window.  The police label it murder and suspect Dani, the museum's chief fund-raiser.  Self-preservation and an insider's understanding of how money moves the art world drive her to investigate who might have a motive for murder.  Dani's playboy ex-husband and a green-eyed cop complicate matters as her search moves through the fashionable worlds of San Francisco and Santa Fe.

Opening Lines:

I was hiding in the third floor ladies' room when my cell phone began to jangle.  Struggling with the oh-so-cute clasp of my Kate Spade evening bag, I cursed the weakness for fashion that had made me choose an accessory that was almost as useless as it was expensive.
