is in the day, attending the balls as her father's
partner. Her life is complicated enough without finding a
body dressed as death at one of balls. When she calls the
police, the death is kept quiet and the detective proves to
be remarkably elusive when Zoe tries to find out more about
the young man.

caught up in the investigation. As she finds out more
about the young reporter, her family troubles will
increase. Her father is attacked and Zoe is threatened.
