Faye Symington is a feature film costume designer who has just been nominated for an Academy Award, and that’s when the trouble begins. An escalating campaign of anonymous harassment drives Faye’s daughter to hire private detective Maggie McGrath, but Faye is a woman generally disliked—and with good reason. She’s arrogant, obsessively self-centered, and capable of cruelty. And Maggie comes away from her first interview with the designer with the uneasy feeling that death threats may be a ploy instigated by Faye herself to drum up publicity for her campaign to win the Oscar. But then Faye is actually murdered in her office at Sony Studios, bludgeoned to death with her Emmy statuette, and along with the glitter of Tinseltown comes more darkness than Maggie ever bargained for.
