Maggie Mars used to be a journalist on the East Coast, but now she's come to L.A. to make a name for herself as a screenwriter... and maybe live her fantasy of someday meeting Jack Nicholson. When Roger Urban, her long-time mentor and friend, is found dead—in a splashy red garter and bra—Maggie is determined to find his killer.
 
Helping Maggie are her legal eagle of a boyfriend and her batty father. Not to mention an L.A. cop who thinks Maggie just might identify the killer. Because of her curiosity and stubbornness—or because he is her ex-boyfriend?
Maggie’s always wanted to see her name in lights—and sometimes a girl gets what she wants. She might find out who killed Roger and become a hot news item.
As the next victim.

Praise for As Dead As It Gets

“A frenetic and funny debut…Kalian milks plenty of stereotypes, but does so with panache and enough originality to be refreshing.”—Publishers Weekly
 
 “An intriguing whodunit with plenty of humor, mystique and fascinating characters.”
Romantic Times BookReviews (4 stars)
 
“Kalian crafts a first-rate mystery while convincingly portraying Hollywood and its
shallow and neurotic denizens.  An auspicious beginning to what is sure to become a popular series.”—Booklist
