A fictional take on the murder of Thomas H. Ince, who's death was famously hushed up. The story takes place in both the present and the past. A young lady searches for answers about her ancestry, and discovers that her grandmother worked for Marion Davies and was in proximity to Ince at the time of his death. The cast of characters is familiar: William Randolph Heart, Marion Davies, Charlie Chaplin, Louella Parsons, Elinor Glyn. The setting: the magnificent Hearst Castle. A worthwhile read. ( )
