NED TO HOLLYWOOD PLAYGIRL DEBRA LAROCHE?
No one has heard from her in weeks. Her former boss, L.A. lawyer Nan Robinson, is certain that Debra would not willingly abandon her divorce proceedings or her Hollywood muscle boys for such a long time without letting someone know.
The police hardly care, so troubled Nan undertakes the thankless task of sifting through the flotsam of Debra's headlong existence for clues to her whereabouts. But Debra's Hollywood playmates are cagey. Her abusive husband is of little help. And her concerned colleagues at Malibu's elegant Past Lives Institute are politically nonplussed.
Nan feels she's reaching a dead end, and perhaps she will--for a murderer decides that another "disappearance" may soon be necessary: namely Nan's....
"Taffy Cannon, I predict, shortly will be recognized as one of the genre's heavy hitters....Cannon is a gifted writer, adept at plot and people, making her debut an event that readers everywhere should cheer.&qu
Cannon's ( Convictions ) first Nan Robinson thriller will leave readers eager for a sequel. Nan, an attorney employed by the State Bar of California, is disconcerted when she tries to contact Debra LaRoche, a secretary who'd left her three years before, since Debra's phone machine plays an outdated message. Nan's search for Debra plunges her headlong into a world of rock groupies and past-life hypnotists, particularly those affiliated with the Past Lives Institute, run by Jonathan Henley and his sister. Nan doesn't believe in hypnotic regression, but she can understand the attraction it might hold for Debra, whose 18-month-old son was killed in a car accident--and she all too easily understands the attractions of Jonathan. When Debra's body is discovered in the trunk of her car at the Los Angeles airport and Debra's estranged husband seems to have killed himself, Nan and the police believe the case is closed. But then Nan finds Debra's journal and becomes a target herself. Cannon's skeptical heroine and her elusive villain stake out the wilds of L.A. in an auspiciously flavorsome foray.
