New England's sexagenarian sleuths are back to solve a reality-show murder in this "fast-paced mystery with two unforgettable leading ladies" ( Booklist ).
Desperate TV producer Barry Stromstein's career depends on his latest brainstorm: " Antiques Roadshow meets The Hunger Games on the set of Gilmore Girls ." When he enlists Connecticut antiques columnist Lil Campbell for help, he unexpectedly hits pay dirt. Lil's undeniably charming lover Ada Strauss is the perfect woman to host it. Now, making it a success is all in the execution. Ask Barry's impossible-to-please boss, Lenore Parks. She's just been gunned down in her dressing room.
Who'd want to kill television's most powerful and popular lifestyle guru? Her wild-child daughter? Her practically perfect son? Try anyone who ever suffered Lenore's wrath. To narrow down a growing network of suspects, Lil and Ada go behind the scenes to dig into the superstar's private life. And for a woman as beautiful as Lenore, her secrets are very ugly. And for Lil and Ada, very dangerous.
