On June 28, 1980, Kelly Michelle Lund shoots and kills Oscar-nominated director John McFadden at a party in his home. For years, speculation swirls over the enigmatic seventeen-year-old’s motives. Convicted of the murder, she loses her youth and her freedom—but keeps her secrets to herself.

Thirty years later—and five years after her release from prison—the past has come back to haunt Kelly. Her father-in-law, movie legend Sterling Marshall, is found in a pool of blood in his home in the Hollywood Hills—dead from a shot to the head, just like his old friend John McFadden.

Once again, Kelly is suspected of the high-profile murder. But this time, she’s got some unexpected allies who believe she’s innocent of both killings. But is she?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting I found it a little hard to follow at the beginning (jumping form past to present), but turned out to be a not too bad of a book

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Expected More! This is the first novel i read by Alison Gaylin and wasn't too impressed for the storyline dragged way too long. All her characters seemed to have their own problems to deal with be it the rich folks or the poor ones. The three main characters Bellamy, Vee and Kelly turned a childhood friendship into secrets as adults that changed their lives forever. Before finishing the book i had already guessed the ending and i expected something different still it was an ok book.

Editorial Reviews

“Gaylin’s hands are skilled, deft, and a little scary; it’s hard to avoid saying “masterful precision” to describe her craft. And like the best movies (hint), it’s an experience you sink into with relish. It gets under your skin.”
