A novel by

 
 
Maggie Mars used to be a journalist on the East Coast, but now she's come to L.A. to make a name for herself as a screenwriter... and maybe live her fantasy of someday meeting Jack Nicholson. When Roger Urban, her long-time mentor and friend, is found dead - in a splashy red garter and bra - Maggie is determined to find his killer.

Helping Maggie are her legal eagle of a boyfriend and her batty father. Not to mention an L.A. cop who thinks Maggie just might identify the killer. Because of her curiosity and stubbornness - or because he is her ex-boyfriend?

Maggie's always wanted to see her name in lights - and sometimes a girl gets what she wants. She might find out who killed Roger and become a hot news item.

As the next victim.

Praise for this book

"As Dead as It Gets is a droll and delightful mystery about the real Hollywood, the screenwriters' Hollywood, a place often short on drollery and delight." - Susan Isaacs
