Ann Whitehead is sick of her job. She's a movie critic for a counterculture rag in Los Angeles and she needs a break. Instead of a break, she gets a murder. A beautiful woman dies in Ann's bathtub and Ann feels compelled to investigate. The victim is a film school grad and industry hopeful; it's the Hollywood story Ann has always wanted to write.The LAPD is also working the murder. Douglas Lockwood is the lead investigator, a talented detective whose career has been derailed by scandal.Ann falls hard for him but won't admit it to herself. She's too busy chasing leads, digging into the victim's past, and wrestling with Lockwood's refusal to talk to the media. On his side, Lockwood wishes Ann would go away. He doesn't need a girl journalist running loose, messing with his crime scene, and upsetting the witnesses.Ann's search for the killer becomes a search for the victim's missing script. The lost script tells of another murder, yet another dead woman, in L.A. in 1944. Suddenly there are two killers and a complicated conspiracy spanning decades. As the number of dead and dying women grows, Ann has a revelation: the people she meets want into Hollywood so bad they'll commit any crime to get there.
