"'An Almost Perfect Ending' ranks alongside the best Hollywood noir. It takes the reader on a journey which leads relentlessly towards a final, fatal conclusion."
Book Two, An Almost Perfect Ending opens with sultry heroine Sonya Saint-Amant at the height of her career-a glittering, triumphant appearance at Ciro's, the clubhouse for the stars in 1950s Hollywood where everyone wants to claim her as their friend.
But in 1954, popular music is undergoing a revolution in which all but the biggest stars will be cast aside. With her looks and popularity fading, Sonya believes she has come up with the perfect plan to save her career . . . if only she can maneuver a tricky path through the many dangers that beset her, a vortex of politics, sex, blackmail, and murder . . .
"Pacy and unstoppable, the second book in the "The Torch Singer" series takes over where the first left off, grabbing your wrist, tugging you along, refusing to let go."
"'The Torch Singer' exposes the fragility of fame. The higher the edifice the greater the risk that some element of deep-set animal emotion or human baseness will bring everything crashing down . . . and watching it happen is not just compulsive-it's addictive and unmissable."
"Robert Westbrook is a born storyteller and a bit of a magician."
Ambition, blackmail, murder . . . THE TORCH SINGER is an unforgettable journey through the shadowlands of fame.
