Leah Randall has spent her life on the vaudeville stage. But when wealthy Oliver Beckett mistakes her for his niece Jessie Carr after a show one night, Leah finds herself cast in the role of a lifetime. It seems Jessie's parents died when she was young, leaving her as the sole heir to a vast fortune. Yet no one has seen or heard from her in years. With Oliver's help, Leah will become Jessie...at least long enough to collect the inheritance, split it with Oliver, and disappear to Europe. But soon after arriving at the Carr family estate in Oregon, Leah realizes that not all of Jessie's relatives are happy to see her. And when she uncovers a series of unsolved murders in the nearby town, Leah begins to suspect there's more to Jessie's disappearance than meets the eye. In Silent Murders (the sequel to The Impersonator), Leah travels to Los Angeles, where a series of brutal murders has Hollywood's most powerful players - including Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford, and Charlie Chaplin - fearing for their lives. Set during the Roaring Twenties, these rollicking adventures, with their whip-smart heroine, make for terrifically fun reads!
