"This book is a rollercoaster of fun"

Movie stuntwoman Dawn Madison flew into Los Angeles to find her father, Frank. She wasn't even really sure he was missing, since he had pulled similar stunts before. But when she gets to Limpet and Associates, where Frank works, she finds herself pulled into a world she doesn't quite understand. Her new co-workers Breisi and Kiko think she is the key to unraveling the whole mess, and her new boss, the "Voice", seems to think so, too. Can she find her father and get back to making movies before this new world sucks her in?

This book is a rollercoaster of fun. It's sharp, witty, and sarcastic, which are three of my favorite things in a book. The author's sense of humor is fantastic and slightly perverse. This is the first book I have read by Chris Marie Green and I have to say she did a superb job of writing it. Each character was strange, unique and wonderful. She had many ups and downs that were amazingly well thought out, and the revelations you find throughout the book are frightening and kind of cool. She's billing this as a trilogy, which is too bad because I would love to see more of this character, just to see how she grows and fleshes out, but this is incredibly worth the read.

Welcome to Hollywood—after dark…

Stuntwoman Dawn Madison is a girl with a lot of attitude—and a lot of issues, mostly about living up to the legacy of her mother, a world famous movie star/sex symbol, whose death left Dawn to be raised by her dad Frank, nobody’s notion of single-father-of-the-year. Now that she’s all grown up, she and Frank aren’t on the best of terms, to say the least.

Still, he is her dad, and when he vanishes while investigating the bizarre sighting—caught on film—of a supposedly long-dead child star, she comes home to Tinseltown to join the search for him. Working with his colleagues—a psychic short in stature but big in dreams of stardom, a beautiful Latina techno-geek, and the P. I. firm’s never-seen boss—she discovers an erotic and bloody underground society made up of creatures she thought existed only on the screen.

They are devious. They are deadly. And some of them are dangerously attractive…
