Publisher Description

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE O’Connor, a vivacious, free-spirited young journalist known for her penetrating celebrity interviews, is bent on unearthing secrets long ago buried by the handsome showbiz team of singer Vince Collins and comic Lanny Morris. These two highly desirable men, once inseparable (and insatiable, where women were concerned), were driven apart by a bizarre and unexplained death in which one of them may have played the part of murderer. As the tart-tongued, eye-catching O’Connor ventures deeper into this unsolved mystery, she finds herself compromisingly coiled around both men, knowing more about them than they realize and less than she might like, but increasingly fearful that she now knows far too much.

    " Adult fiction; mystery/suspense. There are lots of twists in this one for people who enjoy mysteries, and lots of other stuff for people who don't. "

    " The book is better than the film. Changing Vince's background changed the character and motivatioons of Vince. "

    " Part trashy read, part emotional novel, Holmes keeps up the pace so you don't want to put it down and then sprinkles in some phrases so gorgeous you just stare at them. "

    " Didn't make it through the first chapter. Perhaps writing as a woman wasn't his best idea. BLECH. "

    " One of my favorite books ever. I could read it again and again. Loved the narration - personally I couldn't tell that the author was male. I recommended this book to my husband and he loved it as well. "

    " I loved this surprising book. Although I'm tempted to watch the movie adaptation, i think I'll stay away from it. I don't want to spoil my mental movie. "

    " It certainly is fascinating...a veiled story of the Dean Martin-Jerry Lewis partnership with some shocking secrets revealed. Ultimately, though, it becomes too over-the-top. "

    " I LOVED this book--twists and turns--gangsters, drugs and murder. However, the movie made me want to turn in my membership card for the Colin Firth Fan Club. STAY AWAY from the movie. "

    " set in the 70's in hollywood, a journalist delves into the dark secrets of a comedy duo. All a bit surreal and depraved. too weak for a good detective novel. "
