Dagmar Shaw got out of the game ...and into the movies. Sean is a washed-up child actor reduced to the lowest dregs of reality television to keep himself afloat. His life was a downward spiral of alcoholism, regret, and failure - until he met Dagmar. But Sean has secrets, dark even for the Hollywood treadmill of abuse, addiction, and rehab. And Dagmar is a cipher. There are dark rumors about her past - people tend to die around her. Now, she wants Sean for something. A movie, she says, but with her history, who knows what her real game is?

Review:

Darkly funny and brilliantly cynical Charles Stross The blending of mystery-thriller, SF, and traditional Hollywood-story elements is hugely successful. The best of the Dagmar Shaw series and one of the author's finest novels BOOKLIST (STARRED REVIEW) An absolute blast of a novel, as scabrous, cynical, wry and unconventionally appealing as its central character FINANCIAL TIMES The result is a surprisingly funny read. Sean's antics are sarcastic brilliance and Mr. William's book carefully walks the line between sympathy and contempt Pornokitsch Running on an engine of great characterisation and wit, The Fourth Wall mercilessly skewers Hollywood's star machine SFX Great shut-out-the-world escapism & a decent crime story in 1 book BookBag.co.uk
