Obsession. Voyeurism. Murder. . .
Piper Lundberg packed up her clothes, mementos, and her skills at putting pieces where they belonged. The skills of a Hollywood editor were all she had in her basket now. She was slashing her husband’s strings of control and starting with a clean slate.
Perched in her temporary home in the Hollywood Hills, Piper enjoys not only the expansive view down to Sunset Boulevard, but directly into her next-door neighbor’s yard. No ordinary neighbor, Sybil Squire was a 50’s screen goddess. Still a free spirit, she lives as she chooses, including a daily swim as Mother Nature created her, in the nude. That doesn’t surprise Piper.
What does surprise her is a chain of events that escalate into a deadly game of cat and canary. Piper becomes the canary, alert to new dangers. Pegged by the authorities as a meddlesome neighbor, no one takes her warnings seriously. Piper has to put the pieces together before she, herself, is permanently cut out of the picture.
Editing Hollywood movies was once her passion—piecing a story together—now that passion must save her and the idol she knew only on celluloid.
