Dark Vanity

Blair Kilian was a successful British actress, and was hoping to become a sensation in Hollywood. She was on track towards achieving her dreams until she witnessed what seemed to be a suicide on the face value which was followed by series of mysterious happenings in quick succession. Unknown to Blair, it was a high-wired conspiracy with her at the receiving end.

Then the dark secrets that must remain hidden at all costs….

Other characters in the book include Reid Garrett, Alton Price, Derek Christopher, Cameron Haines, Margo, Tony, Landon, Reams and Faye among others.

Granted that the characters are well developed and the plot equally rich, but what stands the book out as a classic is its fast-paced nature and lots of red herrings that will keep the reader on the edge as the story unfolds.

Although Dark Vanity is a fictional story with a plot that was set on Hollywood, it perfectly captures the sort of activities that trail the industry as well as the worldview of movie personalities and celebrities—and of course, the length they could go to protect their reputation.
