Madeline has been content in her new home and Tyler and Tasha have introduced her to a world of celebrities.
Then Tyler asks Madeline to do him a favor and teach the wife of Maxi Livingston about the stock market. Madeline was not at all excited about the project but she didnít feel that she could turn Tyler down. She agreed to do it on the condition that Tyler do a little remodeling of her apartment and Tyler was more than happy to agree.
Neither realized that a little thing like this could be a start on the road to disaster. Keesia Livingston turned out to be a very intelligent woman that Madeline immediately took a liking to and Madeline found it amazing to see the inside of the mansion the Livingstonís called home.

But Keesia was not to survive her party and soon the other ex-wifeís were being threatened.
Madeline was thrown into the middle of an investigation and soon was in danger herself.
