Riassunto:

Ann Whitehead is sick of her job. She's a movie critic for a counterculture rag in Los Angeles and she needs a break badly. Instead of a break, she gets a murder. A woman dies in Ann's bathtub: the victim is a film school grad and Industry hopeful. It's the kind of story Ann was born to write, but the disgraced LAPD detective leading the investigation is determined to stop her. The search for the killer turns into a search for the victim's missing script, the story of another woman murdered in 1944.
Suddenly there are two killers, and a complicated conspiracy spanning
decades. Ann is smack in the middle and everyone she meets wants into the
film business--whatever the price.
There's never been a thriller hitched as brilliantly to the new underbelly of Hollywood as this one. Helen Knode is a startling and original voice.

From the Inside Flap:

Ann Whitehead is sick of her job. She's a movie critic for a counterculture rag in Los Angeles and she needs a break. Instead of a break, she gets a murder. A beautiful woman dies in Ann's bathtub and Ann feels compelled to investigate. The victim is a film school grad and Industry hopeful: it's the Hollywood story Ann has always wanted to write.
LAPD is also working the murder. Douglas Lockwood is the lead investigator, a talented detective whose career has been derailed by scandal.
Ann falls hard for him but won't let herself know it. She's too busy chasing leads, digging at the victim's past, and turning Lockwood into a journalistic challenge: he never talks to the media. On his side, Lockwood wishes Ann would go away. He doesn't need a girl journalist running loose, messing with his crime scene and upsetting the witnesses.
Ann's search for the killer becomes a search for the victim's missing script. The lost script tells of another murder, yet another dead woman, in L.A. in 1944. Suddenly there are two killers and a complicated conspiracy spanning decades. As the number of dead and dying women grows, Ann has a revelation: the people she meets want into Hollywood so bad they'll commit any crime to get there.
