New York Times
bestselling author and Cosmopolitan
editor in chief Kate White delivers a sensational mystery that sends her gutsy, single, thirty-something sleuth Bailey Weggins behind the scenes of a hot new TV show--now available in trade paperback.
Do old flames burn brightest? Now that the TV show Morgue
is shooting in Manhattan
, the crime journalist for Buzz
is remembering her fling with its gorgeous star, Chris Wickersham. But when Chris does contact Bailey Weggins, his intentions are all too honorable: It's to tell her that an actor from the show has gone missing.
Delving deep into the glamorous yet crazy world of TV, Bailey soon finds herself in the middle of a killer story--literally. And as the case gets hotter, so does the action under the covers--especially the moment Bailey's crush Beau Regan comes back to town. With a dead body on the scene, ominous phone calls, and a stalker targeting her, it's clear that this reporter must unearth the truth now--before she becomes the inspiration for Morgue's next episode.
"'In this stylish, funny fifth caper (after 2005's Over Her Dead Body) from Cosmopolitan magazine editor-in-chief White, Buzz gossip mag reporter Bailey Weggins takes a moment off from tracking celebrity crime to hunt down a missing actor. Her one-time hunky fling, Chris Wickersham, calls on her for help finding his friend Tom Fain, who appears with Chris on the TV show Morgue, a C.S.I.-type drama shooting in New York City. Bailey and Chris learn that Tom had been having an affair with the producer's girlfriend and that he withdrew $7,000 in cash before he disappeared. Bailey's dogged pursuit of Tom's trail leads to his family home in upstate New York, where she discovers his rotting remains. Even when another member of the Morgue cast is murdered and Bailey also becomes a target of a very theatrical killer, her lively love life continues with a renewed flirtation with Chris and lingering attraction to another fling, documentary filmmaker Beau Regan. White's flair for pop culture and affection for single career women make this trendy romantic suspense cocktail an addictive read.' Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)"
