Inhaltsangabe: Lucy Freers lives amid the glitzy trappings of Hollywood. Her friends keep up intimate relationships with aroma therapists and body sculptors, and her neighbors' estates boast screening rooms and humidity-controlled wine cellars. The exclusive Windermere Academy, in which her daughter, Chloe, is a fourth-grader, has a shrink on the payroll to lead "encounter sessions" when tiny tempests threaten the students' sunny days. And even bit players in the Windermere school pageants have publicists and ber-agents.

But Lucy, a sensible midwesterner transplanted to this land of Lotus, keeps her sights down-to-earth. She's an outstanding mom, a sexy wife (even with a second child on the way), and an animator whose star is rocketing high. But then, in a flash, her perfect world of storyboard mornings and car pool afternoons goes from romantic comedy to film noir.

Lucy's nanny, Brandon, a former filmmaker--and her onetime lover (but that's another story)--is shot dead while driving her husband's car. It's unclear who the intended victim was, but then Lucy stumbles upon something even more chilling: a videotape hidden among Brandon's things that shows a child in the act of murder.

Though the authorities scoff, Lucy suspects the killer is cruising through classrooms and lunchrooms with Hollywood's privileged children, as dewy-eyed innocent as any other baseball-capped kid. With a razor wit and a hilarious irreverence for the trappings of fame as her only weapons, Lucy launches a one-woman investigation. She brings us smack into the looking-glass world of child actors, where nine-year-olds can fire their own parents, and where little-girl "wannabes" bat false eyelashes at young, swaggering superstars. It is a brilliantly observed world where a child's smile commands top dollar and a killer is about to have the last laugh.

Über den Autor: Lindsay Maracotta is the author of The Dead Celeb and The Dead Hollywood Moms Society. She has worked as a feature film and television writer and lives in Los Angeles with her husband, a feature film executive.
