One fateful night in 1960, Pagan Jones went from America's sweetheart to fallen angel in a heartbeat. Driving drunk, the teen actress lost control and killed her entire family.
Nine months later, a guilt-ridden Pagan is still paying for her actions behind the walls of a girls' reform school. Until Pagan's former agent shows up with mysterious studio executive Devin Black and an offer: Pagan will be released if she accepts a part in a new movie being filmed in Berlin. If Pagan agrees, she'll be under the watch of a court-appointed guardian--the infuriating Devin, who's too young and too smooth to be believed.
The offer's too good to be true. Berlin's in turmoil, and Devin knows way too much about her--but if anyone can take on a divided city, a scheming guardian and the criticism of a world that once adored her, it's the notorious Pagan Jones.
"Well-paced historical thriller. Scary in all the right places, with a strong setup for the sequel." -Kirkus"Fast-paced and furious, this work will be a certain hit with those who love historical fiction, Hollywood, and stories of redemption." -School Library Journal"Noirish writing blends the blinding spotlight of Hollywood, the sexy world of espionage, and a smattering of real-life events and figures to create a fast-paced spy thriller." -Publishers Weekly"This is a well-plotted balance of Hollywood glitter and international political conspiracies during the Cold War, and the historical backdrop is meticulously set. Pagan is a smart, charismatic heroine given depth by her struggles with alcoholism." -Booklist"With a hint of Hollywood glam, mystery and a time period unique to the YA genre, Berry treats readers to a can't-miss story.
