As LAPD detective Kate Delafield investigates the Thanksgiving Day strychnine poisoning of retired movie director Owen Sinclair, she discovers that he turned over names to the House Un-American Activities Committee in the 1950s and destroyed countless careers. But which of his charmingly eccentric neighbors, most of whom have worked in Hollywood since the 1940s, might be responsible for what now appears to be a revenge killing?

"In an apartment on the edge of Beverly Hills, LAPD homicide detective Kate Delafield walks into a shocking murder scene - and straight into Hollywood history. The dead man is old-time film director Owen Sinclair, and seemingly no one regrets his pitiless and premeditated murder. Not his ex-wife or children, and surely not those tenants of the Beverly Malibu who were in the motion picture industry during the blacklist years and have ample motive for detesting the dead man: Sinclair was a "friendly witness" before the House Un-American Activities Committee in the 1950s and destroyed countless careers. As Kate sifts through suspects and clues, she is thrown off-balance by her fascination with Paula Grant, the woman who discovered the murdered man. And she is utterly confounded by Paula's beautiful niece, Aimee."--BOOK JACKET.
