Praise

“Intense, provocative thriller about power, war, and the portrayal of women in film.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
“Intimate novel of psychological suspense… about the limitations imposed on women in male-dominated societies.”—The New York Times
 
“Brundage excels at pushing her characters to their limits and then reflecting on the consequences of their behavior.”—Booklist
 
“Brundage is an astonishing writer… This is the best novel I’ve read about the underbelly of Hollywood since ‘The Day of the Locust.’”— Cleveland Plain Dealer
 
“Elizabeth Brundage delivers a pithy, ironic L.A. noir full of broken dreams and snappy repartee.”—Stewart O’Nan, author of Songs for the Missing
 
“Elizabeth Brundage is the real thing—an ambitious, serious novelist… I couldn’t stop turning the pages of this action-packed, poetic, large-souled novel. And I closed it with a pounding heart.”—Sheila Weller, bestselling author of Girls Like Us
 
“A disturbingly believable thriller that catches you in a spider web of blind ambition, karma, and cinema dreams. Brundage perfectly captures the laid-back perniciousness of L.A. and the dark heart of the movie biz. It’s a 21st-century ‘noir’ that takes you on a journey that leaves you fearful for yourself. Brundage is a singular talent.”—Dirk Wittenborn, author of Pharmakon, or The Story of a Happy Family
 
“I’m pulling out all the best adjectives here: quirky, dark, full of unexpected surprises, and oh yes, a wonderful, thorny portrait of Hollywood.”—Caroline Leavitt, author of Cruel Beautiful World
