"Running out of money, Diana Poole is forced to go back to the only work she knows: acting. Her much-loved husband and movie-star mother have died, and now Diana is over thirty-five. In Hollywood that means she might as well be dead. Still, a few key people remember her talent, and she lands a role in a new movie. But an actress should never get her hopes up, especially when she discovers the female lead's murdered body. Raised in her mother's shadow, Diana knows people in 'the business' will go to dangerous lengths to protect their images. When her own life and career are threatened, Diana decides to fight back and find the killer. But unmasking the surprising murderer isn't that easy, especially when she uncovers what's real--and unreal--in her own life"--Page [2] of dust jacket

Desperate for a fresh start, Rabbit does what he does best: run.

A forty-year-old actress tries to make a comeback & mdash;but death keeps getting in the way Diana Poole was the last of the starlets. A vibrant blonde with a quick wit and sharp intelligence, she was on her way to the top when Colin Hudson changed her mind about being famous.

When he dies, he leaves Diana lonely, broke, and verging on middle age & mdash;a combination that & rsquo;s difficult anywhere, but toxic in Hollywood. Thankfully, Diana still knows how to play the game. Working her old contacts and hustling for a job, she contends with crazy young ingenues, lecherous studio heads, and the cutthroat attention of her fellow fading beauties. But there & rsquo;s an added twist: On and off the set, she can & rsquo;t help stumbling over dead bodies. Tragedy follows Diana Poole, and in Hollywood, tragedy comes cheap
