9781937965037: Shooting Stars: A Carlotta Novak Mystery

As an actress, Carlotta Novak never got off the B-list, but as a hit woman who takes out troublesome stars for studios and financiers she’s number one with a bullet. Now Carlotta is faced with a sticky problem: in order to stay in the orbit of her A-list targets, she needs to make a comeback on the screen. But Carlotta‘s plans are complicated when she finds herself caught in the middle of a nasty feud between Hollywood’s favorite power couple and... the Dalai Lama.

Shooting Stars is the first mystery novel by Hillary Louise Johnson, author of Physical Culture and Super Vixens’ Dymaxion Lounge.

Advance Praise for Shooting Stars:

"The funniest Hollywood novel I’ve read in a long time, up there with the likes of the two Peters, Farrelly and Lefcourt." ~Anne Thompson, Thompson on Hollywood

"Only a veteran of Hollywood’s singularly bitchy madness could write a book as weirdly, crazily, wickedly awesome as this." ~David Corbett, New York Times Notable Author of Do They Know I’m Running?

"Hillary Louise Johnson is breaking out a whole new kind of novel: a satire as good as the genre it satirizes. Shooting Stars skewers the Hollywood social scene straight to the wall with its own nail file. And as a straight-ahead noir thriller, this book is moodily striking enough to make Raymond Chandler look twice." ~Madison Smartt Bell

Praise for Super Vixens’ Dymaxion Lounge:

"LA life as it might have been lived by Bridget Jones." ~Marie Claire

"A slim but wickedly brutal take on existential life in modern L.A." ~ Mark Athitakis, Salon

"Johnson is a universe shaper, with a powerful mind careening slightly to self-parody, and a lot of attitude." ~Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Physical Culture:

"The single most shattering novel I’ve read since Jerzy Kosinski’s The Painted Bird." ~Harry Crews

"Hillary Johnson has achieved in Physical Culture a sort of perfect, corrupt beauty." ~ Patrick McGrath
