Ex-bestselling author Stewart Hoag is after a tell-all Hollywood diary in this short mystery from the Edgar Award–winning author.
Once upon a time, Stewart “Hoagy” Hoag was a celebrity author married to a famous actress. But after a serious case of writer’s block, Hoagy lost it all. Now, with nobody but his loyal basset hound, Lulu, by his side, Hoagy intends to get back on top by transcribing the salacious tell-all diary of recently deceased actress Anna Childress.
It was a foolproof plan—except that Hoagy isn’t the only one after the legendary journal. Suddenly, he and Lulu are up against a who’s who of powerful studio execs, all clamoring to keep a generation’s worth of Hollywood dirt from reaching the public.
