Jake O'Hara has a lot to celebrate. Not only will she be her mother's maid of honor at her forthcoming wedding, but she has been offered her most lucrative ghostwriting work yet-punching up the script for the Broadway musical Suzy Q before it premieres. Unfortunately, the star of the show is Elaine Eden, the award-winning actress of stage and screen, and a Titanic tinseltown twit in Jake's eyes.
Elaine has her share of enemies in this production, including her ex-husband, a young up-and-coming actress, and the play's author, who happens to be the producer's boyfriend. When she falls to her death from a ladder during a stunt, no one is surprised to learn the ladder was tampered with. Now, it's up to Jake to discover which one of Elaine's many critics chose to drop the curtain on her...
