Annie McGrogan, sometime actress and sometime private eye, begins work on a nouveau film with a famous director, but soon finds herself the prime suspect when murder strikes the set
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Annie McGrogan, a New York City actress who works as a PI to pay the rent, appears on the verge of a career breakthrough in this crisp, entertaining encore to Alibi for an Actress . The film role Annie lost to industry insider Lucy Kohl goes up for grabs after Lucy is arrested for drug possession; director Alan DeLucca personally offers Annie the part. Although there is no chemistry between Annie and Choice Wardell, her on-screen husband, sparks fly between her and the handsome director, whom Annie agrees to accompany to the upstate resort where they'll be filming. There they are quickly joined not only by cast and crew but by Alan's wife, children and nanny, and--perhaps worse--by Lucy Kohl, on the arm of Alan's casting director. Things hit rock bottom when Annie finds Alan dead on the floor of her room, blood pooled around his head. As the police's favorite suspect, Annie calls in her co-worker, PI Sonny Gondolfo, but both are hampered by lack of experience: up to now, they've only followed their boss's instructions and neither has ever actually solved a case. With her unsentimental perspective on the movie industry and lively sense of humor, Farrell, who is also an actress and private detective, plays the intrigues and absurdities of her settings and characters for all they're worth.

Annie McGrogan, divorced aspiring actress and part-time sleuth (Alibi for an Actress, 1992), seems to be on the verge of a career break when she lands a part in a movie directed by handsome, talented Alan DeLucca. Mohonk Mountain House, in upstate New York, is the movie's major site, and the production crew moves there- -casting director Fernando Howard; producer Mitchell DuBois; hunky star Choice Wardell; assistants Margo and Amy, along with DeLucca's (supposedly estranged) wife, two kids, nanny, and a host of others. Meantime, Annie, hopes for a romantic rendezvous with DeLucca. Instead, he's found dead in her room, and she becomes the prime suspect. With the help of her detective agency co-worker Sonny and a collective airing of alibis, motives, and dirty linen, Annie gets herself off the hook. An edgy, sometimes funny take on movie-making that's skewered by Annie's boring self-analysis, a mishmash plot, and a tone that's relentlessly now. -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP.
