The Shape of Fear

(A book in the Pierre Chambrun series)
A novel by

At New York's stateliest hotel, the manager has a revolution on his hands

When the leading lights of international society come to New York, no place will do but the Beaumont Hotel. And inside the famous halls of this Manhattan landmark, manager Pierre Chambrun holds every key. Suave, charming, and unflappable, he is as comfortable with the kitchen staff as with the hotel's most luminous guests. And now he has a murder to solve.
For longer than anyone can remember, white-haired gentleman Murray Cardew has lived in the Beaumont, his presence lending the debonair class of a bygone era. But when the dapper old fellow is found murdered in his room, suspicion falls on Digger Sullivan, a rakish playboy who was recently caught trying to rob his ex-lover's suite. And as Chambrun and his press man, the indefatigable Mark Haskell, investigate Sullivan's past, they find a tangled conspiracy of murder and intrigue with roots in one of the deadliest conflicts the African continent has ever seen.
