From the Publisher

From #1 New York Times bestselling author of Pretty Little Liars and The Lying Game, comes a novel about New York’s high society--the beautiful, glamorous Saybrooks, a family filled with secrets and mysterious deaths that may have to do with a family curse.

You know the Saybrooks. Everyone does. Perhaps you’ve read a profile of them in People or Vanity Fair, seen their pictures in the society pages of Vogue and the New York TimesSunday Styles. Or when walking along that choice block on Fifth Avenue, you’ve been tempted to enter the ornate limestone building with their family name etched into the pediment above the door. They’re sort of like me, you think. 

Only they aren’t. Larger-than-life though the family might be, they also have to contend with a lot of death. 

And it’s only going to get worse. 

The Saybrook girls reunite on the August morning of Poppy Saybrook’s funeral. A few years ago, Poppy had done something extraordinary for all of them. For the family. It was something the girls never liked to think about--almost as much as they didn’t like thinking about the family curse. The concept had been invented by the media long ago when the girls were little, the curse was their go-to ghost story when they camped out in the backyard in their family compound in Bedford, New York. It all started, they’d begin, flashlights positioned under their chins, when Great-Aunt Louise fell off a balcony at a New Year’s Eve party. She fell twenty stories, holding her martini the whole time. After Louise, a great-uncle was trampled at a polo match. Then a second cousin’s plane was lost at sea. Then an aunt was kidnapped in Paris. Each Saybrook’s death was odder than the last. 

The curse was always a quirky bit of family lore, nothing more, until Poppy throws herself off the terrace at the Saybrook building. Each girl is gripped with horror. Because with Poppy went all of their secrets. The ones they hoped that no one would ever, ever find out about.

In investigating whether Poppy’s suicide is a murder, the girls get closer to some dark family truths. Not behaving like heiresses at all, they are about to find out once and for all if the curse is real.
