Publisher's Summary

An ongoing string of high-profile and very public murder-suicides has San Francisco even more rattled than a string of recent earthquakes: A flamboyant fashion designer burns to death, clutching the body of his murdered lover. A superstar 49er jumps off the Golden Gate Bridge. And most shocking of all, a U.S. attorney launches her BMW off a highway overpass, killing herself and three others.Enter forensic psychiatrist Jo Beckett, hired by the SFPD to cut open not the victim's body, but the victim's life. Jo's job is to complete the psychological autopsy, shedding light on the circumstances of any equivocal death.Soon she makes a shocking discovery: All the suicides belonged to something called the Dirty Secrets Club, a group of A-listers with nothing but money and plenty to hide.As the deaths continue, Jo delves into the disturbing motives behind this shadowy group - until she receives a letter that contains a dark secret Jo thought she'd left deep in her past, a secret that ends with the most chilling words of all: "Welcome to the Dirty Secrets Club".

Hated it

REALLY mundane, predictable and boring. Even the sex I found boring. Sorry, the author is probably a nice person so I hate to be mean but.......... made it thru about 4 hours.

I am only about 20 minutes into it but already I am having a problem with the reader. The dialogue between the two characters in the first chapter was read with such an overly dramatic flourish it was over the top. I guess the book itself will be okay as long as there's no dialogue. If she were to just read the book without the melodramatics, I think it would be pretty good, but I am not sure I'll be able to get past it.
