Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Maddy Glenn knows how to play politics. But when Hollywood enters, the game turns deadly. With the Republican congressional primary behind her, Maddy Glenn is campaigning full tilt against her Democratic opponent. The last thing the colorful mayor of Santa Rita, California, needs is trouble. Enter Maddy’s cousin, Catherine Anderson, a beautiful young actress newly returned to Santa Rita to take possession of her lavish new home and star in a dinner theater production directed by her old drama teacher. And enter the body of her chauffeur, found floating in the swimming pool. As a police investigation ensues, Maddy continues to run her campaign. And then a script arrives at Catherine’s door—a revised script for Catherine’s movie, with some shocking changes. A disturbing new dialogue suggests that someone is watching Catherine’s every move . . . and waiting to make her part of the script come true.

I loved this book, as I loved the entire Madison Glenn series. The ending was a slight bit corny, though, and I did guess what was going to happen before the end. All in all, still a great book and a very easy read. The book was well-balanced between suspense and spirituality so it all flowed well together. I recommend this series.

Format: Paperback
Madison Glenn's beautiful cousin, Catherine Anderson, is in Santa Rita to star in a dinner theater production. Yet, when Catherine's chauffeur is found dead in her swimming pool, the curtain almost comes down on the performance. It seems that someone has written a few changes into the script that makes real life more lethal.

Alton Gansky knows how to tell a great story and this book is no exception. The main characters, Maddy and Catherine, move the action along with a purpose and power. Maddy is an extraordinary woman, filled with intelligence, wisdom, and Christian compassion. Although she has her eye on a congressional seat, she puts her own career in jeopardy as she literally plunges into the murder investigation. Catherine is also a strong character, gifted with beauty and a stage presence that satisfies her fans.

The author leads readers behind the curtains to catch a glimpse of the production at the theater. The tediousness of rehearsal contrasts sharply with the tension aroused after the murder. The subtle blending of acting with the actual story line gives these pages an unusual twist. As the plot dives deeper into the mystery, the lines blur between the script of the play and the real world. A chilling sense of foreboding creeps in, which won't be fully eased until the final pages.

Every character has a role to play and the spotlight of suspicion swings wildly at moments. Yet, when it all fades to black, readers will sigh with relief and contentment. There's no need to fear the ending of this book--Alton Gansky is a master storyteller. -- Joyce Handzo, Christian Book Previews.com

Format: Paperback
Another great book from Alton Gansky, read the first two in this series, Director's Cut is the third book. HOPE he writes another. This book will keep you guessing who done it to the end. This is a Christian mystery but not preachy, none of his books are, but you do know the characters and where they stand on God. I love the fact I can read a great mystery thats clean of bad words.
