The improbable protagonist is JJ Johnson, one of the most highly sought after (and highly paid) spin doctors in LaLa Land. If an A-list actor, producer, director gets in trouble, JJ is his/her first call and produces results that mitigate their sins and keeps them atop their a-list pedestals.
One such errand takes JJ to one of LA's most exclusive bistros, Alfie's. Since she's helped the owner out of a sticky-wicket, JJ merits a standing weekly table. Usually, Alfie's has only five tables, three on the upper level and two on the lower. Today, however, a extra two-seat table is fitted into the lower level for upcoming A-lister Alex King (a client of JJ's) and his date - a super-model.
Alex isn't much interested in Simone or her non-stop narcissistic chatter and excuses himself to the bathroom.
As JJ ponders her monotonous lunch partner, her thoughts wander to the past and her husband Tom, although she quickly pushes those thoughts away, making us aware that something dark has made her who she is today.
A scream suddenly turns the lunch chatter into total silence as the cream-de-la-cream of the film world are confronted by the sight of all the kitchen staff walking out at the behest of a man in a black balaclava with a machine gun and explosive vest.
A suicide bomber is JJ's first thought.
But is he?
What is he?
And the intensity escalates . . . who will live and who will die?
And just what (or who) does he want?
My only criticism (this paragraph may be a tiny sub-plot spoiler): I don’t understand why the author tried to hide Alex King’s sexuality from the reader. Whether he realized it or not, he telegraphed that Alex was gay from the get go, and I don’t think he needed to save that intended “reveal” until the book was almost over. In fact, the narrative became clumsy at one point, even ungrammatical, when he used “they” several times to avoid saying “he” when referring to Alex’s ex. Unnecessary and really annoying when the reader already knows the ex is a “he.” But this was only a minor distraction in an otherwise great read.
Cannot find any of this author's books in eBooks. Well, on to another book/author.
