Description

Another fine mystery novel from the ever popular Poisoned Pen Press.

In 1955 Edna Ferber is basking in the success of her blockbuster novel Giant. Director George Stevens and Warner Brothers Studio are in the final days of filming her Texas oil epic, and Edna looks forward to meeting Rock Hudson, Liz Taylor, and especially young James Dean. But there is trouble brewing. James Dean, the new box-office sensation and teen heartthrob, has been accused of fathering a child with an unstable extra named Carisa Krausse. The studio fears the negative publicity will jeopardize the release of the movie. Then the actress is murdered, and James Dean is the prime suspect. With character-actress Mercedes McCambridge as her sympathetic sidekick, a shaken Edna investigates the killing, determined to clear Deanas name. Edna soon entrenches herself in the life of the often secretive maverick actor. But can she prove his innocence? The more she investigates the more she uncovers simmering rivalries, petty jealousies, and cruel infidelitiesathe dark underside of glittering Hollywood. A dynamite debut launches a series for Ferber as shrewd sleuth.

REVIEWS

Ifkovicas promising debut, the first in a series, features real-life writer Edna Ferber as an amateur sleuth in 1955 Hollywood. The Pulitzer Prize winner is visiting there because her bestselling novel, /Giant/, is being made into a film starring Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson and James Dean. While she as repelled at how show biz distorts the thinking of everyone involved in it, she becomes fascinated by young Deanatruculent, winsome, infuriating and brilliant. Though heas the hottest actor in town, heas still vulnerable to blackmail letters from an unstable actress, so heas the prime suspect when sheas murdered. The septuagenarian Ferber, an equally shrewd but tarter version of Miss Marple, begins investigating with the help of /Giant/ co-star Mercedes McCambridge, sorting through a city built on vanity and glamour. Ifkovic handles the mystery plot competently, but the main pleasure is looking beneath the surface of the movie business to see the stars as people, in particular the doomed Dean. — Publishers Weekly, April 2009.
