Overview

From the award-winning author of There Was an Old Woman comes a mystery tinged with Hollywood glamour, set in a town where fame and infamy are often interchangeable

Los Angeles, 1985. When Deirdre Unger makes the drive from San Diego to Beverly Hills to help her father put his dilapidated house on the market, she's expecting to deal with his usual kvetching and dark moods. But she gets a lot more than she expected. . . . In a cruel Sunset Boulevard in a twist, Deirdre arrives home to find her father facedown in his too-small swimming pool dead.

At first, Deirdre assumes her father's death was a tragic accident. But the longer she stays in town, the more Deirdre begins to suspect that everything isn't as open-and-closed as she first presumed. The sudden resurfacing of Deirdre's childhood BFF Joelen Nichol daughter of the famous and infamous Elenor "Bunny" Nichol seems like more than a coincidence. Back in 1963, Joelen confessed to killing her movie-star mother's boyfriend. Deirdre was at the Nichols' house the night of the murder, which was also the night she suffered her own personal tragedy. Could all these events be connected?

As Deirdre digs deeper into the past, she becomes increasingly convinced that her father's death is merely the deadly third act in a story that has long been in development. And if she isn't careful, she might be its final victim."

Old Hollywood glamour, scandals, and lies infuse this captivating thriller set in 1985 from Mary Higgins Clark Award–finalist Ephron (There Was an Old Woman). Screenwriters Arthur Unger and his ex-wife, Gloria, used to work in the movies, but the film industry moved on without them. Gloria now lives in a Buddhist retreat, and financial strains force Arthur to sell his Beverly Hills home. When their grown daughter, Deirdre, arrives from San Diego to help prepare the house to go on the market, she finds her father floating dead in the swimming pool. Meanwhile, Deirdre’s childhood best friend, Joelen Nichol, resurfaces. Back in 1963, when Joelen was 15 years old, she confessed to fatally stabbing the abusive boyfriend of her actress mother. But what happened the night of the stabbing isn’t completely clear, nor are the circumstances of a car accident in which Deirdre was crippled years before. Ephron deftly links all the story lines en route to the surprise ending. Agent: Gail Hochman, Brandt & Hochman Literary Agents (Apr.)
