Sequel to: Poppy Harmon and the hung jury.
Summary, etc.:
"Cast in her first role since the 1980s, Poppy has never been more rattled or unprepared on a film set. It's an embarrassing but necessary cover to keep an eye on client Danika Delgado, a rising starlet and social media influencer with a large following - including a dangerous stalker who won't disappear. The leading lady's fame is growing, and so are the threats against her life. Unfortunately for Poppy, there's more to fear than flubbed lines. When she finds Danika smothered to death in her trailer at Joshua Tree National Park, the horrifying crime stirs up memories of a man known as the Pillow Talk Killer during her time as a young actress, bringing unsolved murders from the past back into focus. A trail of clues urges Poppy, hunky sidekick Matt Flowers, and the rest of the Desert Flowers Detective Agency gang on a frantic chase after Danika's crazed #1 fan. But as co-stars and production crew members start looking equally suspicious, Poppy must expose a slew of insidious industry secrets before a murderer rolls out the red carpet for someone else . . ."--Publisher.

    Poppy Harmon, Iris Becker, and Violet Hogan are partners in the Desert Flowers Detective Agency. Matt Flowers is the public face of the agency, deterring any potential clients unlikely to take three sixtysomething female detectives seriously. After the increasingly successful agency is hired by actress and social-media influencer Danika Delgado to protect her from a stalker, Poppy and partners find themselves on location at Joshua Tree National Park, where Danika is filming a movie. Soon both Poppy, a former actress, and Matt, a prospective actor, are roped into being in the film. Then Danika is killed in a manner Poppy believes is strangely reminiscent of the murders of several young actresses in the 1980s. The group investigates, with Poppy stalking Detective Lamar Jordan, using his wife's social-media postings to get inside information on the case. Well-drawn characters, including principals and supporting cast, especially the sleuths' 12-year-old computer expert, combine with surprising plot twists and plenty of humor to make this a satisfying entry in Hollis' popular cozy series.
