High crimes and haute couture heat up The City Fashion Forgot
Skeptical fashion reporter and stylish sleuth Lacey Smithsonian
returns in the second volume in the Crime of Fashion series. This time she becomes entangled in a fabric of deceit and death when
high fashion collides with low dealings in very unstylish Washington, D.C. A missing Congressional intern's scandalous
secret, a New York fashion dynasty's closetful of skeletons, a young designer's unsolved disappearance, and a long-lost scrap of black
market silk from World War Two--it's a pattern custom-tailored for murder. And what on earth does her beloved Aunt Mimi's trunk full
of memories and long-forgotten dress patterns have to do with the faceless but well-dressed body in the swamp? Lacey and her motley
crew of friends and conspirators race to unravel the truth behind two disappearances sixty years apart and unmask the killer
behind a dress to die for.
Lacey's Fashion Bite of the Day:
Shopping under the influence of temptation? Beware of
chocolate highs, bogus bargains, frivolous friends,
and impossible fantasies. Or are you really ready to jet off to Spain, just because
slinky little white dress whispers, "Barcelona"?
