All These Condemned

by John D. Macdonald Dean Koontz

A television star wilting under the limelight. An adman with a stiff upper lip. A rising New York artist. A desperate housewife. All are victims of a cruel puppet master--and now, in John D. MacDonald's riveting whodunit, one of them is a killer.Introduction by Dean KoontzThe head of a global cosmetics empire, Wilma Ferris became a self-made success by taking everything people had to give and more. Mixing business with pleasure is her standard operating procedure. And she's playing the same games when she invites eight of her closest friends--all of whom owe their livelihoods to Wilma--to a weekend party at her lake house.After a late-night skinny-dipping session turns into a frantic search for the missing host, it becomes apparent that one of them had seen enough. Wilma's body is pulled from the cold water, and the cause of death isn't drowning--it's a blow to the head. But was it a crime of passion or premeditated murder? Neither would surprise Wilma's guests. Each of them has a motive or two. And in the end, all will be condemned.Praise for John D. MacDonald"John D.
