Hollywood, 1947. It’s a town of glittering stars and lavish excess, where actors are legends, studio heads are gods, and even crimes are larger than life.
It’s the perfect setting for Paris Chandler, an ex-deb with a nose for celebrity dirt and a job with Etta Rice, queen of the gossip columnists. But as rumors fly fast and furious, Paris will discover a disquieting thing: when private trysts and intimate passions go public, so does murder.
Paris Chandler thinks its her lucky day when Mrs. Jack Seeberg, wife of the famed movie director, walks into the Society Department of The Los Angeles Examiner with a juicy tip. Only trouble is, the tip’s a fraud, the shapely brunette’s a fake, and the next time Paris sees her, she’s in the Santa Monica morgue. Now Paris has a crack at covering a real crime story. But as the city reels from the shock of the Black Dahlia murder, Paris soon finds her investigation leading her down a winding trail of broken hearts and busted dreams . . . and deeper still into the tarnished world of Hollywood illusion, where the next unnatural death could be her own.
