Hot young British film star Amanda Delany had the world at her feet. She'd had a string of affairs with famous actors, making perfect fodder for the tabloids. Then came a commission to write a tell-all memoir. When Amanda is found brutally murdered, DCI James Langton's enquiry discovers the sad truth behind her successful facade. Addicted to drugs and starvation diets, she'd almost died from a botched abortion. Meanwhile, DI Anna Travis is up for promotion, but Langton is blocking her, accusing her of professional misconduct. This latest case could make or break Anna's career.
