Fresh from solving the murder of a fashion magnate's wife in "Live
at 10:00, Dead at 10:15," TV newsmagazine producer Sonya Iverson
returns in "Shooting Script," another luxurious thriller from Elsa
Once again working on a "puff piece," this time about the opening
of a new luxury spa headed by the third and youngest wife of Errol
Swanson, former head of Sonya's own network, Sonya decides to put
her frustration to good use. She's an investigative reporter--so
And there's plenty of dirt to dig. For one thing, the head honchos
at the network all seem scared of Errol--even Donna Fuller, Sonya's
boss and a crusading journalist, treads softly where Errol is
concerned. Rumors claim that Donna and Errol had an affair, and
Errol's made a heavy-handed pass at Sonya.
Then there are the wives. Wife #1, Joan, is eating herself to death
and trying desperately to wrest control of her family toy business
away from her supposedly retired ex-husband. Craig, her son with
Errol, disappeared a decade ago and is presumed dead; his twin
sister, Christy, is mentally and emotionally unstable and has been
the family scapegoat for years.
Wife #2, Margot, is a successful fashion designer who still lives
in fear of Errol's notoriously violent temper. He's got his hooks
into her business too, and the loans are due. Margot brings a gun
to the spa, to protect herself and her charming son, Tomas. Tomas,
a budding fashion model, wants his father to accept him, but his
homosexuality disgusts Errol, and the two men have never had a
Wife #3, Lara, seems to be full of love and human kindness. She's
engineered a family reunion along with the spa opening in an
attempt to reconcile her husband with his wives and children before
her own baby is born. Learning of Errol's past cruelties, Lara does
her best to soften her hard-headed husband, but his unusual sexual
demands have begun to wear on her soul. Lara has secrets of her
own, a dark past that may soon be exposed.
Rounding out the family gathering are Errol's Aunt Tracey, who
knows where the bodies are buried--perhaps literally--and Sonya's
fellow reporter Frank O'Neill, who has a deeply personal connection
to Lara and who is preparing a book-length expose of Errol
When Errol is found, shot to death while tied to the bed he and
Lara shared, the morning after a family dinner marked by
vituperation and violence, local police have an abundance of
suspects. But Sonya is already several steps ahead of the official
investigation. She's determined to find out who killed the mogul .
. . and get her scoop on the air.
