Los Angeles 1949. A city of big dreams and dark shadows...
Lily Kessler, a former stenographer and spy for the OSS, comes
to Los Angeles to find her late fiance's sister Kitty, an actress
who is missing from her Hollywood boardinghouse. The next day,
Kitty's body is found in a ravine below the Hollywood sign.
Unimpressed by the local police, Lily investigates on her own. As
she delves into Kitty's life, she encounters fiercely competitive
starlets, gangsters, an eccentric special-effects genius, exotic
denizens of Hollywood's nightclubs, and a homicide detective who
might distract her from her quest for justice. But the landscape in
L.A. can shift kaleidoscopically, and Lily begins to see how easily
a young woman can lose her balance and fall prey to the alluring
With vibrant characters and unerring insight into the desires
and dark impulses that can flare between men and women, "The Last
Embrace" showcases Denise Hamilton at the height of her
storytelling powers as she transports readers to a fascinating,
transitional time in one of America's most beguiling cities.
