Publisher's Summary

Los Angeles, 1986: When Deirdre Unger arrives in Beverly Hills to help her bitter, disappointed father sell his dilapidated house, she discovers his lifeless body floating face down in the swimming pool. At first Deirdre assumes her father's death was a tragic accident. But the longer she stays in town, the more she suspects it is merely the third act in a story that has long been in the making.

The sudden resurfacing of Deirdre's childhood best friend, Joelen Nichol - daughter of the legendary star Elenor "Bunny" Nichol - seems like more than a coincidence. Back in 1958, Joelen confessed to killing her movie-star mother's boyfriend. Deirdre happened to be at the Nichols' house the night of the murder - which was also the night she suffered a personal tragedy of her own. Could all of these events be connected?

I love her other books

This was my least favorite Hallie Ephron story. There Was an Old Woman & You’ll Bever Know Dear were darkly delicious reads with likable characters and moving relationships. This book, however, didn’t seem to follow the same format. I couldn’t stand the setting and theme of this book surrounding the characters in “old Hollywood” yearning and disgruntled celebrity. I found it lacking and only finished so I knew who did it and why which ultimately left me disappointed. The ending was unbelievable.

I couldn't stop listening

Any additional comments?

This was a gripping and suspenseful tale. I got totally sucked into the story, and I was left guessing until (almost) the very end. I look forward to reading (or listening) to more of Hallie Ephron's books. And Ann Marie Lee was really a great narrator.
