Praise

“This fast-paced mystery twists and turns, providing snippets of real 1934 history to bring the story to life. . . . the snappy dialogue and a humdinger of a final plot twist offer a satisfying read. . . . An exciting ­addition to any high school mystery or historical fiction collection.”—School Library Journal

“Kulper returns with another gripping mystery novel that also features romance and action among the glitz and glamour of 1930s Hollywood. Readers will find familiar themes of harassment in Hollywood, hearkening to modern-day issues such as the #MeToo movement. The mystery component keeps the pages turning as the two main characters grow closer and work toward a resolution.”—Booklist

“Kulper delivers an action-packed mystery replete with witty dialogue and buoyed by an ardent, slow-burn romance that enthralls while spotlighting Hollywood’s long history of abusing, commodifying, and discarding women.”Publishers Weekly

“Full of high-stakes tension, this exploration of what happens when powerful men don’t get what they want will resonate with ongoing conversations about women’s vulnerability in the entertainment industry. Refreshingly, Henny is no damsel in distress, and the simmering enemies-to-lovers romance with Declan, whose hard exterior disguises a heart of gold, is rewarding. . . . An atmospheric page-turner with real-world resonance.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Kulper’s follow-up to Murder for the Modern Girl (BCCB 5/22) delivers the same gritty world-building. . . . Henny follows in Ruby’s footsteps as another confident, savvy heroine. . . . Henny and Declan’s sharp, funny banter and earnest chemistry provide the heart and spine throughout the gruesome mysteries and supernatural thrills of another superb novel from Kulper.”—The Bulletin for the Center of Children’s Books
