2003 Best First Mystery Nominee

RT Rating

Waking up bruised and battered in a hospital with no memory of the assault is an ordeal for screenwriter Lauren Atwill—especially since police don't believe what
little she does recall.

Even the support of her estranged movie star husband is of no comfort after Lauren and one of her friends are contacted by a blackmailer. Only her own investigation—and the aid of P.I. Peter Winslow—produce any clues at all. No one likes where they lead…particularly the police.

A real treat, STAR STRUCK DEAD offers a stylish glimpse into the grit and glamour of '40s Hollywood. (Oct., 368 pp., $6.99)
