Old Hollywood has its secrets, its impersonators and backdoor entrances to old speakeasies and clubs where only those with the proper credentials can go. And when Carol Childs gets too close, she finds herself politically at odds with powers that threaten to undue her career and like the very girls she’s seeking, disappear.

Carol Childs gets involved when she's called to the body dump. When someone else she knows, Gabi, is missing, she thinks there may be a connection. Then her daughter is drugged during a pub crawl and Carol is on a mission, with a little help from her friend, Sherri. Her corporate boss wants her to let it drop, wants a clean, homey show with lots of positives - certainly not a kidnapping/sex trafficking ring in Hollywood.
Silverman spins a great tale here, and I for one will not have the same thoughts when I hear of (or see) a Clark Gable impersonator. The story moves quickly and Carol manages to get herself into trouble. This isn't so much a "whodunit". The "who" is easy. Carol's challenge is in proving it without endangering her daughter or herself. This is the second in the series, but can easily be read as a stand alone. I'm looking forward to the third when it comes out.
