Set in the 1920s in the height of Vaudeville, silent movies, and the birth of Hollywood. Jesse Beckett is a strong, independent woman who never gives up, especially when it comes to murder. With the help of Douglas Fairbanks and her idol Mary Pickford, it makes for a fun quirky mystery you are bound to enjoy!
Miley is wonderful in the way she adds an historical narrative throughout, I couldn’t stop myself from googling!

A complex mystery written in the first person, set in the time of the transition from Vaudeville to the early days of Hollywood. A fun read.
