Cassie Kramer and her younger sister, Allie are the daughters of former Hollywood actress, Jenna Hughes. Both had followed in their mother's footsteps, however, Cassie really has no acting talent, while Allie is a star.

They both have parts of a new movie, and in trying her hand at screenwriting has changed the very last scene. Cassie takes a smaller part in order to give her sister a bigger part. Unfortunately, the day it was filmed, Allie is a no-show and her body double is shot and nearly killed.

The rest of the book follows Cassie's adventures in looking for her sister. The plot gets a little convoluted, a little confusing.

More murders are committed and they are all related to the movie in one way or another. They are found with grotesque masks mimicking the Kramer sisters.

There are so many suspects, it is only when Jenna Hughes admits to a secret she's carried for more than 20 years does the light start to shine.

The ending is tense and suspenseful .... And not everyone makes it out alive.

The plot was extremely complex and difficult to follow. I didn't care for most of the characters, it even took a while for me to warm up to Cassie.

I've read many of this author's books and been very satisfied. Not so much this one.

Many thanks to the author / Kensington Books Zebra / NetGalley who provided a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
