In the four years since she arrived in Los Angeles, Kitten Agnew has become a star. Not all by herself, of course; though beautiful and talented, Kitten would be lost without her director, the acclaimed and powerful Vivien Spender.
But Spender is a dangerous man. Kit knows that, and has heard all the stories - of discarded stars that have ended up in a chorus line, or a sanatorium, or worse.
Spender knows that Kit knows, and wouldn't dare destroy her glittering career. But he may be willing to kill her . . .
On a train from LA to Chicago, Kit makes a discovery that could have her fighting not just for her career, but for her life.
