Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dagmar Shaw got out of the game... and into the movies.

Sean is a washed-up child actor reduced to the lowest dregs of reality television to keep himself afloat. His life was a downward spiral of alcoholism, regret, and failure... until he met Dagmar.

Except Sean has secrets, dark even for the Hollywood treadmill of abuse, addiction, and rehab. And Dagmar is a cipher. There are dark rumors about her past, the places she's been, the things she was involved in. People tend to die around her and now, she wants Sean for something. A movie, she says, but with her history, who's to say what her real game is?

Review:

"Williams turns in a sedate and sinister near-future mystery to follow thrillers This Is Not a Game and Deep State. Sean Makin is a former child star who at 29 has resorted to humiliating himself on reality TV. The protagonist of the earlier books, Dagmar Shaw, hires Sean to star in an unusual multibranched movie serial, and soon he's being stalked and his co-workers start turning up dead. Has his deepest secret made him a target, or has the mysterious Dagmar drawn him into something terrifying? Sean is not a sympathetic character, but his in-depth moviemaking knowledge and experience with Hollywood's dark side are engaging. Dagmar appears enough to satisfy fans, though she may look undeveloped to those who missed her previous adventures. Williams is a master of the little details that add depth to his exceptional writing and bring his world to life. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
