Description:

When a top Hollywood Agent is found poisoned in the bathtub of her home, suspicion quickly turns to one of her two nieces. But Carol Childs, a reporter for a local talk radio station, doesn’t believe it. The suspect is her neighbor and friend, and also her primary source for insider industry news. After a media frenzy pits one niece against the other—and the body count starts to rise—Carol knows she must save her friend from being tried in the court of public opinion.

But even the most seasoned reporter can be surprised, and when a Hollywood psychic shows up in Carol’s studio one night and warns her there will be more deaths, things take an unexpected turn. Suddenly nobody is above suspicion. Carol must challenge both her friendship and the facts, and the only thing she knows for certain is that the killer is still out there. But the closer she gets to the truth, the more danger she’s in.


My Thoughts:

This book starts out when one of Hollywoods Agents Pepper Millhouse is killed in her bathtub no less, but quickly the focus gets put on her nieces as to who murdered her.  Carol Childs ends up investigating the murder to find out what really happened and to clear her neighbor Samantha who is due to inherit with the death of her aunt.  Who had the most to gain with Pepper dead?  Or was it just someone she really upset?

I enjoyed reading this book and learning things about Hollywood and the radio business you would never know.  This book was full of twists and turns and had me really on edge to find out who the murderer was.  This book is great for reading on one of those days you don't want to leave the house.  Can't wait to see what Ms. Silverman comes up with next.
