SUMMARY

Former detective Nic and well-heeled wag Nigel star in their own Hollywood whodunit

Walking the red carpet at the Academy Awards with a bow-tied Bullmastiff draws Nic and Nigel Martini plenty of attention from the press. But that’s nothing compared to the attention they receive at the A-list after party, when Hollywood royalty learn they’ve discovered behind-the-scenes footage from an acclaimed film that left one of its stars dead.

Returning home after the party, Nic and Nigel find their house in shambles and their employee DeDee Evans beaten within an inch of her life. And when the weapon used to pummel DeDee implicates a beloved actress, Nic and Nigel drink and banter their way into a modern-day version of a golden-age crime caper.

Praise:
"Kiely's modern-day Nick and Nora Charles provide plenty of clever repartee as they delve into a mystery full of Hollywood heavyweights with motives for murder."—Kirkus Reviews

"It's a gossip columnist's delight! . . . This is a lively romp, with snappy dialogue, likeable leads, and a goofball dog who stays in on the action."—Booklist

"A terrific mystery . . . The plot, as well as the conversations between the couple, and their relationship with their gigantic dog, are all a plus where this outstanding story is concerned."—Suspense Magazine
