A riveting read. I got it for Christmas. Once I started and I didn't want to put it down. A great mystery with unexpected twists and turns. Filled with the grit that lurks behind the glam of Hollywood. A blast.

Well, this is my book, so I'm terribly biased. I'd love to know what you think when you read it.
Loved this book. Very noire which was what I was in the mood for! I hope this author has other books I really like his writing style.
