Suzanne Gates Ò 9 Summary

characters The Glamorous Dead 109 Ody buried beneath it Rosemary with the beauty and talent who stood out from all other extras on the Paramount lot She was the one whose name was destined for a movie maruee not for the obituaries And for an extra twist now an LAPD detective thinks Penny is the one who killed her Penny is determined to prove her innocence with a little help from an unlikely ally the world famous ueen of film noir Barbara Stanwyck Penny met Stany on the set of Paramount's cl. I didn t like this book at all I really wanted to The description on the back of the book does not match the story It is not thrilling or suspenseful The protagonist is mostly an idiot or at least mentally unbalanced I could not see anyone doing the things she didAlthough we realize that sleazy things happened in Hollywood during that era the book made me feel sleazy just for reading it I There was no redemption for any of the characters I will probably not purchase any of Ms Gate s titles I do not see my library patrons enjoying this any than I did

characters The Glamorous Dead 109 Assic comedy The Lady Eve where the star took an instant liking to her With Stany's powerful connections and no nonsense style she has no trouble following clues out of the studio backlot from the Los Angeles morgue to the Zanzibar Room to the dark winding streets of Beverly Hills But there's something Penny isn't telling her famous partner in crimesolving a not so glamorous secret that could lead them to Rosemary's killer or send Penny to the electric chai. I think a member of my book club summed it up nicely when she said This book should be re titled CALL YOUR BROTHERFirst of all I spent a good couple of pages wondering who the hell the main character was until I checked the back of the book jacket to remember it was Penny This book was not glamorous it was just one shit show after the other and I found myself frustrated with the main character because she wasn turgent about the murder that took place Also she knew she saw her brother so pick up the phoneAlso the whole reason behind the murder in the first place wasn t the robbery or a cover up or anything linear like that I found it random And while I enjoyed the first half by the time we came around to Will I started to loose interest and by the time we found out who did it and why I was just disappointed I will recommend this book to certain people who will enjoy it but I won t read it again

Thank you so much to Kensington Books for giving me an ARC of The Glamorous Dead by Suzanne Gates via Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewI m sorry but 15 I DNF it on 36% and I never DNF any book but this I tried I tried so much but this just didn t pull me I do not recommend this for people who has no idea what s happened in 1930s1940s Hollywood Yes I know I picked up a book set in 1930s Hollywood Yes I know it s going to deal with things I do not know aside from brunettes and blondes in curly bob hairstyles I only knew a bit of that era and wanted to learn but I only learned a bunch of words that didn t make any sense to me It seemed interesting but the author did not explain what those nicknames are and what they are doing Obviously they are shooting for some kind of film and they are extras and all that but I was still in a lossAnother reason I didn t finish this was I didn t feel any suspense orand thrill that this book promises It s a mysterythriller book after all The book immediately starts with Rosemary s body being found told by our narrator and main character Penny Rosemary s best friend The author lays out possible suspects and try to play and confuse the reader from finding the real suspect but it just fell flat for me I didn t even have any interest to know who the real suspect is It may be contributed to the narration I didn t feel any connection on Penny she sounded so distant and rigid I can t feel any of her hate remorse sadness nothing I can t even sympathize with her She was bland and flat to meThe writing was also odd for me anyway I feel like I m missing something There are not enough descriptions and it makes you feel lost The dialogues are weird the characters talk about two subjects without any pauses and just confuses you Do they talk like that back then I don t think so Penny is accused of murder and no one seems freaked out They just hate her that s it And when a cop chases you in a subdivision of rich people when you re accused of murder you should freak the hell out but no she just chats with drunk Madge about her family and lets the girl puke in a bush of someone popular while she daydreams of her First Mother I do not get it all And despite her being a murderer she is still able to work WHAT IS HAPPENING WHY DOES NOBODY CARESI never felt any thrill suspense or interest I really tried hard to connect and get myself interested and immersed but I was seriously just in a loss I couldn t stand it any and had to stop reading
