Promised her first screen credit in years by Marathon Studios‚ script doctor Lauren Atwill is promptly loaned out to second-tier Epic Pictures. And she’s not happy. Are Marathon’s bosses spooked by the grapevine gossip that bodies fall whenever she signs onto a picture?
Her first Epic assignment electrifies her: Bring a scandalous novel to the screen‚ a story of betrayal‚ greed‚ corruption and a brutal killing. Then fiction turns into real life.
Lauren finds a murdered girl‚ and discovers how far the studio and even the police will go to cover up the killing and protect a star. If she won’t lie‚ her career is over. And maybe her life.
In Hollywood‚ telling the truth is the most dangerous thing you can do.
