A murder will occur in thirty days. It's up to Anne Johnson to prevent it . . .

Free-spirited and freshly divorced, fifty-year-old Anne Johnson is living the good life. With plenty of money to keep her comfortable, she spends her nights in her luxurious, elegant apartment in Washington, D.C., cuddled up beside the fireplace with a good book in one hand and a perfect martini in the other.

Then, out of nowhere, Anne hears a voice in her head warning that there will be a murder in her building in thirty days -- and that only she can stop it. Without a clue about what to do, she confides in Mary, the building's large-and-in-charge cleaning woman -- and together they plan a party to ferret out the would-be killer before time runs out.

As they make preparations, Anne writes up a list of potential suspects, which unfortunately includes the gorgeous Russian neighbor she can't stop lusting after. But as much fun as Anne and Mary are having, the clock keeps ticking -- and if they don't act quickly, the swanky soiree might end up as a good-bye party -- for them . . .
