Hollywood Buzz: A Pucci Lewis Mystery (Large Print)by Margit Liesche
Synopses & Reviews
Pucci Lewis was used to ferrying fighter planes and undercover work. But itas the dark hours of WWII, and Hollywoodas biggest stars, studio moguls, and Washington bureaucrats are working hand-in-glove to merge entertainment and propaganda. Pucci has been dispatched to the First Motion Picture Unit, where a make-or-break documentary on the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs) is underway.
Pucci is stepping in for a sister-WASP, now hospitalized in critical condition after an all-too-deliberate plane crash. But whoas the saboteur? Why the cover-up? Pucci is drawn into a high-profile homicide. A big-name director has been murdered, possibly by Nazi operatives. Military intelligence wants Pucci to learn what she can from her inside position.
Bela Lugosi is a frequent visitor to the Beverly Hills mansion where Pucci is temporarily billeted. His aniece, a a rising starlet and also the housekeeper, has a history with the Hungarian resistance. But Pucci doesnat trust the girl.
Can Pucci steadfastly maneuver through movie land and its narcissistic denizens, finally unraveling the uncertainties to prove she has the right stuff?
In the dark hours of World War II, Hollywood's biggest stars, moguls, and Washington bureaucrats are merging entertainment and propaganda. Pucci Lewis is dispatched to Fort Roach where a member of the Women Airforce Service Pilots is involved in a suspicious plane crash.
