Description

"Intense, provocative thriller about power, war, and the portrayal of women in film."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Intimate novel of psychological suspense... about the limitations imposed on women in male-dominated societies."--The New York Times

"Brundage excels at pushing her characters to their limits and then reflecting on the consequences of their behavior."--Booklist

"Brundage is an astonishing writer... This is the best novel I've read about the underbelly of Hollywood since 'The Day of the Locust.'"-- Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Elizabeth Brundage delivers a pithy, ironic L.A. noir full of broken dreams and snappy repartee."--Stewart O'Nan, author of Songs for the Missing

"Elizabeth Brundage is the real thing--an ambitious, serious novelist... I couldn't stop turning the pages of this action-packed, poetic, large-souled novel. And I closed it with a pounding heart."--Sheila Weller, bestselling author of Girls Like Us

"A disturbingly believable thriller that catches you in a spider web of blind ambition, karma, and cinema dreams. Brundage perfectly captures the laid-back perniciousness of L.A. and the dark heart of the movie biz. It's a 21st-century 'noir' that takes you on a journey that leaves you fearful for yourself. Brundage is a singular talent."--Dirk Wittenborn, author of Pharmakon, or The Story of a Happy Family

"I'm pulling out all the best adjectives here: quirky, dark, full of unexpected surprises, and oh yes, a wonderful, thorny portrait of Hollywood."--Caroline Leavitt, author of Cruel Beautiful World
