Which is why the perfect person to solve a behind-the-scenes mystery in the Golden Age of Hollywood is legendary costume designer Edith Head.
The Agatha Award-nominated Design for Dying marks the debut of a new series set when the silver screen was at its brightest … making the shadows around it even darker. Wised-up once-aspiring-actress Lillian Frost meets Edith Head during a murder investigation. Together, they turn Tinseltown on its ear. “With two smart, resourceful heroines and starry cameos around every corner,” says Edgar Award-winning author Megan Abbott, Design for Dying is “a delicious cocktail, one you won’t want to end.”
Dangerous to Know beguilingly blends forgotten fact and fanciful fiction thanks to a real international scandal in which the war clouds gathering over Europe cast a shadow on Hollywood. “Lillian and Edith triumph again in Renee Patrick’s star-spangled second outing,” says Susan Elia MacNeal, New York Times bestselling author. “The ladies persevere with their usual wit, glamour, and aplomb.”
