A deranged failed actor plots revenge against a Hollywood starlet Desmond stands in a grotty flat on the outskirts of London, trying to decide between methods of revenge. He drags the lipstick across his mouth, slips into the pair of stockings, and finds the dress fits even better than he expected. It's been a long time since Des wore drag, when his uncanny ability to imitate Hollywood icon Coral Reid won him renown across the French Quarter, but he still has what it takes—and he's going to put his skill to bloody good use. The real Coral Reid is in London shooting a movie, and Des wants payback for a thousand slights, real and imagined. He has enough acting experience to sneak onto the set and get close to his target, but is he better off killing her or snatching her child? No matter which he chooses, vengeance will be a messy business.
