A Cursed Diamond? Sonya Iverson, intrepid TV producer, is working on a story about the auction of the magnificent Braganza Diamond when the gem's owner, Wade Bruckheimer, is found dead--poisoned, along with his parrot--in his palatial apartment. Wade had inherited the diamond from his beautiful, glamorous mother, Esperanza--and had allowed his stepmother, Irina, to wear it. But Wade needs money to support his luxurious lifestyle, and selling the gem--estimated to be worth at least $30 million--seems the fastest way to get it. Irina is angry and heartbroken--she feels the diamond should be hers. Wade's uncle Jorge is furious that his beloved nephew can't see that family honor demands that the jewel be returned to Brazil and displayed in the national museum. It's great television--and the story only gets better once Wade is murdered. Suspects abound--not just those intent on the diamond, but others who had personal reasons to dislike the murdered man. Sonya's interviews may hold the key to solving Wade's murder . . . which makes her not just a sleuth, but the killer's next target!show more

A solid mystery with a pace like a volcanic eruption."--"Kirkus Reviews" on "Shooting Script ""Should appeal to Danielle Steele fans."--"Booklist" on "Shooting Script ""Entertaining and fast-paced." "--RT Book Reviews "on "Shooting Script ""The style expert's first novel is a hot mystery set in the fashion world, featuring a smart female producer who scoops a murder case." "--US Weekly "on "Live at 10:00, Dead at 10:15 ""After reading "Live at 10:00, Dead at 10:15", I know that Elsa Klensch will have as long and successful career as a writer as she did as a pioneering fashion journalist for CNN. Elsa proved that television coverage of fashion could be successful. Now she proves that she is as good at writing fiction as she is in front of a camera."--Oscar de la Renta on "Live at 10:00, Dead at 10:15 ""Only Elsa could fashion such a lively murderous tale."--Calvin Klein on "Live at 10:00, Dead at 10:15 ""The style expert's first novel is a hot mystery set in the fashion world, featuring a smart female producer who scoops a murder case. Kick back in your stilettos to find out who knocked off a mogul's wife: the supermodel, the designer, or her own hubby!"--"US Weekly" on "Live at 10:00, Dead at 10:15 ""If Mickey Spillane dealt in dress patterns and couture instead of lead and vengeance, this is the kind of book he'd write. The book is brisk and sharp, building to a satisfying and hilarious payoff."--"New York Post" on "Live at 10:00, Dead at 10:15"show more
