Realtor Nikki Harper is often privy to the kind of celebrity secrets the tabloids would kill to hear - but the latest murder case to rock Tinsel Town is truly shocking. Ryan Melton is well known as the arm-candy husband of former child star Diara Elliott. Beautiful and ambitious, Diara appears on the television series Casa Capri, which stars none other than Nikki’s mother, Victoria Bordeaux. In fact, Nikki recently met Ryan and Diara at one of her mother’s parties. Now Ryan’s lifeless body has been found by his swimming pool, and the security tapes have mysteriously been erased....
Nikki Harper is a superstar among Hollywood realtors. Among private investigators however, she’s strictly amateur, and her first case was a Waterworld-sized disaster. But when a body turns up in a dumpster behind Victoria Bordeaux’s mansion, Nikki feels duty-bound to get involved. Before his demise, Eddie Bernard was the über-privileged son of one of the biggest television producers of all time - and a spoiled, violent, party-boy loser. The list of people glad to see him gone could stretch across Bel Air.
Set in Hollywood, The Bad Always Die Twice is the first of a wildly entertaining series set amidst the bright lights, big egos, and Botoxed brows of Hollywood. It is partly the glitz and glamour of Jackie Collins novels and partly the LA streets of hard-boiled James Ellroy. Who better to tell this tale than Cheryl Crane, daughter of Hollywood legend Lana Turner and actor-restaurateur Joseph Stephen Crane?
