Set in the dream factory of the 1940s, this glittering
debut novel follows a young Hollywood hopeful into a
star-studded web of scandal, celebrity, and murder . . .
The chipped pink nail polish is a dead giveaway—no pun
intended. When a human thumb is discovered near a Hollywood
nightclub, it doesn’t take long for the police to identify
its owner. Miss Penny Harp would recognize that pink
anywhere: it belongs to her best friend, Rosemary. And so
does the rest of the body buried beneath it. Rosemary, with
the beauty and talent, who stood out from all other extras
on the Paramount lot. She was the one whose name was
destined for a movie marquee—not for the obituaries. And for
an extra twist, now an LAPD detective thinks Penny is the
one who killed her . . .
Penny is determined to prove her innocence—with a little
help from an unlikely ally, the
world-famous queen of film noir, Barbara Stanwyck. Penny met
“Stany” on the set of Paramount’s classic comedy The Lady
Eve, where the star took an instant liking to her. With
Stany’s powerful connections and no-nonsense style, she has
no trouble following clues out of the studio backlot, from
the Los Angeles morgue to the Zanzibar Room to the dark,
winding streets of Beverly Hills. But there’s something
Penny isn’t telling her famous partner in crimesolving: a
not-so-glamorous secret that could lead them to Rosemary’s
killer—or send Penny to the electric chair . . .
