|Plot Summary of Crystal Clear|
|"Manhattan accountant Crystal Goldstein is convinced by her hippie, "new age", best friend to go to a spa. When she arrives she learns that her guide to all the spiritual sites in the region is her ex-husband Terry. A member of her tour group is Amanda Reid, a celebrity socialite. When Amanda is kidnapped, Crystal and Terry find themselves investigating the case (and rekindling their romance). Their problem is that everyone in Amanda's entourage, and many other people, all had reason to want Amanda out of the way."
