As they travel by ship to New York for her childhood friend Tabitha’s wedding, Amory Ames is excited by the prospect of being a bridesmaid. Her husband, Milo, however, is convinced their trip will be deadly dull, since Prohibition is in full swing. But when a member of the wedding party is found murdered on the front steps of the bride’s home, the happy plans take a darker twist. Amory discovers that there may be a connection to the notorious gangster Leon De Lora, but while the police seem to think that New York’s criminal underworld is at play, Amory can’t help but notice how the wedding party seem strangely unaffected by the death of their friend …
As Milo and Amory are drawn into the glamorous, dangerous world of nightclubs and bootleggers in an unfamiliar city, they draw closer to unravelling a web of lies and half-truths the victim has left in their wake, the killer is weaving a web of his own.
