A movie star's suicide draws a young woman into the deadly shadows of a Hollywood scandal in this novel from "a master of suspense" (Mary Higgins Clark). More than fifty years ago, Victoria Frazer and Roger Brandt were the most popular stars of the silver screen—until a notorious and tragic love affair on set in the Appalachians destroyed their lives. It was there, at the foot of Rumbling Bald Mountain in Lake Lure, North Carolina, where Victoria drowned herself, and where Roger would remain—drifting into obscurity as a tortured recluse. Now, a half-century later, screenwriter Lauren Castle has arrived at a Lake Lure resort in the wake of a more recent tragedy: the suspicious death of her husband, a documentary filmmaker who was investigating the legendary Hollywood scandal. Lauren's husband held the most closely guarded secret of all: She is Victoria's granddaughter. Only one other person knew her secret, the couple's close friend, Gordon Heath, whom Lauren is inexplicably drawn to. Now she must solve a mystery that links two generations, has claimed more than one victim, and has yet to reach its deadly and final fade-out. New York Times–bestselling and Edgar Award–winning author Phyllis A. Whitney "is, and always will be, the Grand Master of her craft" (Barbara Michaels). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Phyllis A. Whitney including rare images from the author's estate.
