Renting Silence by Mary Miley. Published by Severn House

Jessie is a script girl in 1920s Hollywood, working with her idol, Mary Pickford when the actress approaches Jessie with a plea for help. A woman has been found stabbed in her bedroom, another woman lying unconscious next to her with a bloody knife in her hand. To the police, this is an open and shut case, and the woman has a date with the hangman. Jessie is the young woman’s only hope, so, with Pickford’s help, she begins to investigate, moving through the golden age of Hollywood, meeting some of the biggest stars of the time in an effort to uncover the truth. I loved this period mystery, the characters, the setting all contributed to make this an outstanding read.
