Vaudeville actress Leah Randall took on her most daring role
ever when she impersonated missing heiress Jessie Carr in order to
claim Jessie's inheritance in "The Impersonator." Now that the dust
has settled around that tumultuous time in her life, Leah has
adopted Jessie's name as her own and moved to Hollywood, where
she's taken a modest but steady job in the silent film
Jessie's thrilled when Bruno Heilmann, a movie studio bigwig,
invites her to a party. She's even more delighted to run into a
face from her past at that party. But the following day, Jessie
learns that sometime in the wee hours of the morning both her old
friend and Bruno Heilmann were brutally murdered. She's devastated,
but with her skill as an actress, access to the wardrobes and
resources of a film studio, and a face not yet famous enough to be
recognized, Jessie is uniquely positioned to dig into the
circumstances surrounding these deaths. But will doing so put her
own life directly in the path of a murderer?
With "Silent Murders," MB/MWA First Crime Novel Competition winner
Mary Miley has crafted another terrifically fun mystery, this time
set in the dizzying, dazzling heart of jazz-age Hollywood.
