Brett Tanager is writer-producer of the hottest detective show on television. That is, until the mistakes of one dreadful night send her careening into a downward spiral of drink, drugs, and despair. Losing everything--close to rock bottom--she is approached by her ex's daughter whose best friend has gone missing. Brett's attempt to help plunges her into a dark, disturbing journey through moneyed Hollywood and its sinister underside, pitting her against the cunning of a ruthless killer--and a web of deceit in which the darkest secrets may be her own.
