(17 Feb. 2009) - Crime | Drama | Mystery

A country club is rocked when its queen bee, Scarlett Marquesa, is poisoned (with rat poison) at a cocktail party in her home. After interviewing party attendees and the women who served on the club's committee board with Scarlett (who was the chairwoman), the CBI discovers that the community itself is full of secrets, including love affairs and drug abuse. It turns out Scarlett held in-home jewelry parties as a front for the sale of diet pills, tranquilizers, painkillers, etc. Because of the economic downturn, Scarlett was determined to keep up appearances and save her family by any means necessary, which ultimately lead to her murder.
