THE SONG IS YOU
Readers never seem to get enough stories about the dark underbelly of Hollywood during the '40s and '50s. But instead
of retelling a familiar case, such as the murder of the Black Dahlia or George Reeves' suicide, Abbott fictionalizes the real-life 1949 disappearance of showgirl and bit-part player Jean Spangler. Her descriptions are so lush, vivid and lurid that you'll feel totally immersed in the Hollywood demimonde, swigging hooch and peeping in bungalow windows alongside her tortured protagonist.
