Rachel Knight faces down the murderously ambitious side of Hollywood in Marcia Clark's thrilling new novel.
Would you kill to protect your career?
Deputy DA Rachel Knight and Detective Bailey Keller are catapulted into the most high-profile investigation of their careers when the teenage daughter of superstar director Russell Antonovich, one of Hollywood's most powerful men, is kidnapped.
Things go wrong fast. The young girl's body is found abandoned in the trunk of a car. And Rachel's hunt for the killer puts her on a collision course with some of the most celebrated players in the film industry - and into conflict with her own boss, who is desperate to stay on their good side.
It seems the glittering surface of Hollywood covers a darkness to match the most depraved criminals. But Rachel will bring the truth to light... no matter who wants it to stay hidden.
