If you got KILL BILL as a live cartoon you will get a big kick out of Shooting Stars.

The characters are all interesting, putting together their abilities at strategic underachieving to unravel a mystery involving Hollywood's most alluring couple.

I, for one, cannot wait to see what Carlotta Novak, our intrepid hit-woman heroine, will have in her crosshairs the next time around.

I loved this book -- it takes the Hollywood we think we know and has its way with it. Just the idea of the Hollywood hitwoman made me want to read this book, and then I opened a few pages and saw how funny it is. Tight writing, hilarious dialogue and scenarios, and a book that kept me awake reading -- and laughing -- into the wee hours. I also loved the real people who made appearances in the book -- my favorite being hit assignment lady Anne Thompson, barking into her phone. Just brilliant.

It's been a long time since I've found a book I could really get lost in, laugh with, connect with on an intellectual level - and realize I'd read the whole thing in about two sittings. This is that book.

As they say, it's called "show business" - not "show friends". This book drives to the heart of what makes Hollywood run, and brings a fun, edgy perspective that isn't as far-fetched as it might seem. Trying to guess who's who, waiting to see who's next, and getting inside the mind of Carlotta Novak - a singularly cerebral, sexy, all too real character who doesn't take herself too seriously - all make for a read you'll remember. The most fun I've had for less than $5 since, well, ever.

Carlotta's got your back - or not. Depends on your value to the studio money men and how SHE measures your worth. She's cool and cagey with a moral code that trumps the Dali Lama's. After reading Shooting Stars I'm ready to off a few studio execs and dudes in robes. But then again, I'd rather pay Carlotta to do it! Hillary Johnson has created an unforgettable character. A hit woman with a conscience - who knew? I'm hooked and can't wait for the next Carlotta Novak mystery.

I actually fantasized calling in sick so I could keep reading this book.
The characters are all interesting, putting together their abilities at strategic underachieving to unravel a mystery involving Hollywood's most alluring couple. Loved all the Hollywood cultural references to art, place and style.
What a smart mystery, it didn't unfold like I thought it would.
