Morse's second novel is a richly engrossing whodunit set in 1970s Hollywood. The story features two likable main characters and a delightfully complex plot filled with a myriad of twists and turns and no small amount of danger. Morse deftly plants clues throughout and offers plenty of possible outcomes before revealing a surprising and satisfying end that readers won't see coming.
Kate Bloom is an aspiring film maker and the granddaughter of a famous Hollywood star who was murdered on a movie set in the 1940s. Kate finds two reels of film shot on the day her grandmother died, and believes they hold the key to solving the mystery of who killed her. She works with Dylan, a renowned film restoration expert, to repair the film, but as they get closer to the truth, and to each other, their lives are put in jeopardy. It's a race to the end to restore the film and find the killer before he or she claims another victim. (WILD ROSE PRESS, Sep., 396 pp., $5.99)
