Baker & Taylor
When her husband of twenty years dies under mysterious circumstances, leaving his fortune--and Jo's position in society--to a mysterious French countess, Jo Slater, once one of New York's leading grande dames, comes up with an ingenious scheme to seek revenge designed to recoup her fortune and reclaim her "throne," with only a little murder standing in her way. 35,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
When Jo Slater, one of the grandest of New York's grande dames and great patron of the arts, befriends a young French countess, trouble begins. Ignoring warnings from friends, Jo abruptly discovers the truth about her mysterious guest. But it is too late. Jo is knocked off her pedestal and the young woman takes her place in society. Dethroned and dispossessed in the world where she once reigned, she sets out to recoup her fortune and reclaim her throne. Using her knowledge of the eighteenth century, she concocts an ingenious scheme based on the greatest historical swindle of all time, a true story involving Marie Antoinette. In order for the scheme to work, however, she must resort to the most desperate of all measures: murder.
