THERE ARE NO SECRETS IN A DRESSING ROOM

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.

Design for Dying marked 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, the second book in the series, 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. “Sleuth Lillian Frost and legendary Hollywood costume designer Edith Head 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.”
