Blogger Layla dreams of studying journalism in New York, while strictly-raised rich girl Aster is desperate to make it as an actress, and country boy Tommy has set his sights on becoming a Grammy-winning musician. They share one thing in common: the desire to succeed at any cost, which is what pushes them to enter a contest to promote LA nightclubs to an A-list clientele. Enter Madison Brooks, the Hollywood starlet who’s shunned her past, “seized control of her destiny and made it her bitch”, and whose presence at any club brings a whole lot of kudos, not to mention press. When the lives of the three contestants entwine with Madison’s, they get a whole lot more than they bargained for after she goes missing and they’re implicated in a suspected homicide.Part thriller, part racy peek through the keyhole of the dark side of celebrity-worshipping culture, this novel is as exhilarating and seductive as the world it depicts and dissects, posing the million dollar question: how far will a person go to get what they want?
