The Other Lady Vanishes Paperback

Description

In the second installment of her new series, Jayne Ann Krentz/Amanda Quick takes us back to California, where Hollywood moguls and stars seeking privacy for scandalous trysts and wild parties come together in the glitzy set of the 1930s. . . The New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Who Knew Too Much sweeps readers back to 1930s California - where the most dazzling of illusions can't hide the darkest secrets . . . After escaping from a private sanitarium, Adelaide Blake arrives in Burning Cove, California, desperate to start over. Working at a herbal tea shop puts her on the radar of those who frequent the seaside resort town: Hollywood movers and shakers always in need of hangover cures and tonics.

One such customer is Jake Truett, a recently widowed businessman in town for a therapeutic rest.

But unbeknownst to Adelaide, his exhaustion is just a cover. In Burning Cove, no one is who they seem. Behind facades of glamour and power hide drug dealers, gangsters and grifters.

Into this make-believe world comes psychic to the stars Madame Zolanda.

Adelaide and Jake know better than to fall for her kind of con.

But when the medium becomes a victim of her own dire prediction and is killed, they're drawn into a murky world of duplicity and misdirection. Neither Adelaide nor Jake can predict that in the shadowy underground they'll find connections to the woman Adelaide used to be - and uncover the spectre of a killer who's been real all along . . .
