I stumbled upon this a little while ago and thought how much it breathed life into a battered genre. It crosses boundaries, something I’ve tried to do but failed miserably. I’m pretty sure if you read this you’ll understand what I mean.

Amazon description:

Iris Avery and her best friend, Estella, spend their time drowning in the empty excesses indulged in by their crowd of Upper East Side snobs until Estella’s sudden, shocking death.

Iris searches for answers in everything from philanthropy to hypnotherapy, feeling her existence is nothing more than a dark half-life full of guilt and repentance, but finds only endless questions. And several of them revolve around her when she discovers she’s connected to a high-profile murder.

Later, Iris begins hearing Estella’s voice whispering cryptic commentary in her head, and she can’t help but wonder if the hypnotherapy has been helping or hurting. Is her friend trying to warn her about something?

Bizarre packages pile up on her doorstep, and their meaning is obvious: Iris’s secrets aren’t so secret after all.

Update: Over the last few years Melissa has been prolific in bringing us more excellent stroies. Her series of books featuring Agent John Maxwell are exceptional. Visit her Amazon page here.
