"[Vaudeville actress turned Hollywood insider] Jessie's thrilled when Bruno Heilmann, a movie studio bigwig, invites her to a party. She's even more delighted to run into a face from her past at that party. But the following day, Jessie learns that sometime in the wee hours of the morning both her old friend and Bruno Heilmann were brutally murdered. She's devastated, but with her skill as an actress, access to the wardrobes and resources of a film studio, and a face not yet famous enough to be recognized, Jessie is uniquely positioned to dig into the circumstances surrounding these deaths"--Amazon.com.

Set in the 1920s in the height of Vaudeville, silent movies, and the birth of Hollywood. Jesse Beckett is a strong, independent woman who never gives up, especially when it comes to murder. With the help of Douglas Fairbanks and her idol Mary Pickford, it makes for a fun quirky mystery you are bound to enjoy!
Miley is wonderful in the way she adds an historical narrative throughout, I couldn’t stop myself from googling!

A complex mystery written in the first person, set in the time of the transition from Vaudeville to the early days of Hollywood. A fun read.
