'Hughes is the master we keep turning to' Sara Paretsky

'The tension and terror of Dread Journey are such that few will be able to lay the book down unfinished' New York Times

'Cornell Woolrich meets Agatha Christie' Publishers Weekly

'Superbly done' Washington Post

In the four years since she arrived in Los Angeles, Kitten Agnew has become a star. Not all by herself, of course; though beautiful and talented, Kitten would be lost without her director, the acclaimed and powerful Vivien Spender.

But Spender is a dangerous man. Kit knows that, and has heard all the stories - of discarded stars that have ended up in a chorus line, or a sanatorium, or worse.

Spender knows that Kit knows, and wouldn't dare destroy her glittering career. But he may be willing to kill her . . .

On a train from LA to Chicago, Kit makes a discovery that could have her fighting not just for her career, but for her life.
