Mac Reilly is a PI with a penchant for lost causes. One night in Malibu, he comes to the rescue of a distraught woman holding a gun in the doorway of a fabulous beach house. When the woman disappears and the gun shows up in his car, Mac is pulled into a web of deception and lies. His quest to find her takes him from southern California to the beaches of Mexico to the streets of Rome and the countryside of France. All the while, one step behind an elusive murderer, and one step ahead of an actress who wants nothing more than to get lost.

    " If I heard "So, ok" one more time I might shoot myself in the foot. I liked the story but I hated that line. I think this was a better story than the Venice one ... "

    " This was a fun read- definitely not to be taken too seriously.
    The story is reminiscent of black and white movies (and not just film noir) and farcical comedies, with the characters all entwining and the "mystery" building. If you want a break from reality, then read this book. "
