What They're Saying

Do You Promise Not to Tell?

In this nail-biting media thriller, the mighty world of television news collides with the art world's secrecy and high-stakes wheeling and dealing. From a deadly back room in Brooklyn's "Little Odessa" to the wealth, power and glamour of Churchill's, one of New York's most prestigious auction houses, no one is safe and everyone is a suspect, all under the threatening gaze of the unforgiving network news cameras.

Farrell Slater, a TV news producer, is at a crossroads. Her job at KEY News hangs in the balance when she fails to convince her boss to broadcast the story of the auctioning of the legendary Fabergé Moon Egg. While trying to figure out what she will do with her future, she learns that the multimillion-dollar treasure isn't all it appears to be. Farrell seizes the opportunity to expose the story and, in the process, to save her career.

If you love drama and intrigue, this up-to-the-minute peek inside a closed world is too tantalizing to be missed!

It is a fun read with some nifty twists." (USA Today)
