New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts weaves scandal, celebrity secrets, and murder into an explosive novel of Hollywood almost too wicked not to be true: the story of a legendary actress who knows too much—and the woman she’s chosen to reveal it all. . . . 

Eve Benedict is the kind of subject who could make any biographer’s career. Last of the movie goddesses, she has two Oscars, four ex-husbands, and a legion of lovers, both famous and infamous. Now she is ready to write a tell-all memoir that has even Hollywood’s richest and most powerful worried.

Julia Summers never dreamed of being chosen to tell Eve’s story. But even if it means transplanting herself and her ten-year-old son from their quiet life in Connecticut to the withering limelight of Beverly Hills, it’s an opportunity too great to pass up. But Julia never imagined how far someone would go to keep Eve Benedict’s book from being published . . . until she discovers just how dark Eve’s secrets are. And the one man Julia hopes she can trust—Eve’s stepson, Paul Winthrop—may have the most to gain if his stepmother’s story is never told . . . and if Julia’s life ends before she can write a word of the truth.

“Roberts does a beautiful job weaving together the movie star’s tittilating tales and the love story that develops.”—USA Today


  • One of Her Best

    By Jburkes3
    I have read most of Nora Roberts' books, and this was one of the best. It had everything - mystery, a good story line, romance, and suspense. I changed my mind several times about "who done it", before the end. It also had a LOT of characters, but they were all colorful and added to the tone of the story. And, as always, nobody writes dialog as well. An excellent read!
  • Perceptions create drama…

    By RebekahKhan
    It was a slow build…Nora has a way with characters I usually figure it out right before the middle but this one took me all the way to the end. She has been my favorite author since I was 16…I never have a dull experience. This one was wrapped in reality and facade but a beautiful story of perception.
