What happens when a motion picture studio in 1920 is taken over by a crime family? Addy and Zeke, a stunt double and a director's assistant, work with the police to bring the gangsters to justice. But Addy's cousin has married into the crime family. When Addy is given a key to bring down the family and the studio, will she use it?
"Thank you for inviting me."
He maneuvered a turn toward a quiet hallway. "I want to talk to you about a problem that's causing me a lot of trouble. I think you can help me. Seeing that I gave you a little leverage to advance at the studio, maybe you can do something for me."
Addy felt her face burn. What did he want? Surely he couldn't be going to make advances toward her, too. It would be so awkward, with him being Muriel's father-in-law, but she would fight him just as she had Mr. Abrams and John. "What is it?"
"The master ledger for the studio has been missing for a while." He tightened his grip on her. "I think you know where it is."
Addy almost slumped to the floor. She'd forgotten about that. This could be even worse than if he'd tried something on her. She tried to make her voice steady, but it came out in a shaky squeak. "Why do you think that?"
"You were the last one to see Leman alive."
