A very special killer — one who claimed to know the truth about her mother's disappearance many years ago. She sipped at her forty- year-old cognac and spotted Flynn and his partner in their car across the street. You can lie to your sainted mother if you want to, but don't lie to me. Flynn had lousy manners, always looked like he needed a haircut and a shave, and dressed in Salvation Army castoffs, but he thrilled her in a way that made a century of loneliness fall away. She enjoyed the hunt, and could recount with startling accuracy the origins of each piece and how she had acquired it.

Toss in bringing her new beau home for Sunday dinner and trying to explain the hundred pairs of stolen Jimmy Choos in her Uncle Vito's living room. As they neared the club entrance, the sidewalk was packed with women in low-rise skirts and Prada boots and men smelling of heavy cologne. And of course, her tapestries from Shanghai, though she still felt a pang sometimes when she looked at them. Tessa zipped up her gown, expertly put on her makeup and then sipped her cognac again, thinking of Flynn and berating herself for this stupid infatuation.

Maybe a few well-hatched plans, a bit of matchmaking and a dose of Mafia Chic will get her out of this jam. And she ain't no Girl Scout. Do you think you're a member of Duran Duran? Is that a mustard stain? Her furniture was heavy mahogany wood, late nineteenth century. She's running a dirty club. Makes me wonder about her.
