When billionaire William Adams--Marin County's most eligible widower--marries international superstar model Willow Wisp, Belvedere's society women are dismayed. After all, she is half his age and, in their view, not interested in anything other than his money.
Like everyone else, newspaper publisher Rob Timmons, his assistant, Holly Cross, and his childhood friend, Sheriff's Detective Eddie Austin, are baffled when Willow vanishes.
Is she dead or simply hiding in some far flung corner of the world with one of her many rumored lovers? Or was she the victim of a cuckolded husband, who learned too late that his trophy bride was in truth, a very wicked wife?
The answers lie somewhere between the posh hotels of Paris, the dazzling parties of San Francisco, and the lush green hills of Marin County.

Excellent writing but a plot so simple a child could solve the murder in a few minutes, interesting to read about locale tho .
A 200 page very well-written murder mystery set in the cream of the rich, Belvedere, CA across the Golden Gate Bridge. Billionaire meets rich fashion model and it's a fairytale....but what happens when Cinderella might be the wicked witch in disguise? Some adult situations, violence, and language.
