Goldstein (The Prince of Nantucket) delivers up a mostly smooth-sailing novel of art, murder and politics. In one week, 20-something SoHo art gallery manager Madison Mandelbaum is getting married to the man of her dreams. Then an anonymous tipster begins leaving her disturbing messages about her fiancé, journalist and transplanted Brit Colin Darcy, who, apparently, does more than the investigative reporting for which he is quickly gaining fame. Colin, in fact, may have something bigger to hide than the call girl he was possibly seeing behind Madison's back. The hooker turns up dead and Colin is a likely suspect, though he swears he had nothing to do with it. Madison, however, has her doubts, and after catching Colin in some whopping lies and getting insider information from her assistant DA best friend, she determines to uncover the truth and save her wedding day. The backdrop of the final frenzy before a wedding makes this madcap romp zippy and fun, although Madison and her pals sometimes stretch credulity a smidge too thin.
