Farrell, Gillian B - 2nd in Annie McGrogan series

Annie McGrogan, divorced aspiring actress and part-time sleuth (Alibi for an Actress, 1992), seems to be on the verge of a career break when she lands a part in a movie directed by handsome, talented Alan DeLucca. Mohonk Mountain House, in upstate New York, is the movie's major site, and the production crew moves there- -casting director Fernando Howard; producer Mitchell DuBois; hunky star Choice Wardell; assistants Margo and Amy, along with DeLucca's (supposedly estranged) wife, two kids, nanny, and a host of others. Meantime, Annie, hopes for a romantic rendezvous with DeLucca. Instead, he's found dead in her room, and she becomes the prime suspect. With the help of her detective agency co-worker Sonny and a collective airing of alibis, motives, and dirty linen, Annie gets herself off the hook.

A terrible ending that no mystery author should use, particularly on their second book!


A mystery that is not a murder.
