Los Angeles 1949. A city of big dreams and dark shadows...Lily Kessler, a former stenographer and spy for the OSS, comes to Los Angeles to find her late fiancés sister Kitty, an actress who is missing from her Hollywood boardinghouse. The next day, Kittys body is found in a ravine below the Hollywood sign. Unimpressed by the local police, Lily investigates on her own. As she delves into Kittys life, she encounters fiercely competitive starlets, gangsters, an eccentric special-effects genius, exotic denizens of Hollywoods nightclubs, and a homicide detective who might distract her from her quest for justice. But the landscape in L.A. can shift kaleidoscopically, and Lily begins to see how easily a young woman can lose her balance and fall prey to the alluring citys dangers....With vibrant characters and unerring insight into the desires and dark impulses that can flare between men and women, The Last Embrace showcases Denise Hamilton at the height of her storytelling powers as she transports readers to a fascinating, transitional time in one of Americas most beguiling cities.
