The landscape and characters of post-World War II Los Angeles come brilliantly alive in Edward Wright's atmospheric new novel. Former actor John Ray Horn's ex- leading lady, Rose Galen, is now a faded beauty who wears her quiet desperation on her sleeve. But when Horn tracks Rose down to try to help her he only discovers that she's been viciously strangled to death. Horn's investigation into her death leads him back to the silent-film era and to a party at a Hollywood mansion where Rose's destiny changed forever. This stunning crime novel takes you into Hollywood's un-derbelly during a time when the studio system was crumbling yet memories of the glory days were all too familiar. Edward Wright brings back his "engaging cast of characters" (San Francisco Chronicle) into a more textured story and more complex mystery.
