It's the dark hours of WWII, and Hollywood's biggest stars, studio moguls, and Washington bureaucrats are working together to merge entertainment and propaganda. Pucci Lewis has been dispatched to Fort Roach, where a make-or-break documentary on the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) is underway. Pucci is stepping in for a sister-WASP, now hospitalized as a result of a suspicious plane crash. But who's the saboteur? Seeking answers, Pucci is drawn into a high-profile homicide.
Bela Lugosi is a frequent visitor to the Beverly Hills mansion where Pucci is temporarily billeted. His "niece" has a history with the Hungarian resistance. But is she to be trusted?
Can Pucci unravel the web of uncertainties, and prove she has the right stuff?
This is Margit Liesche's second Pucci Lewis WWII home front adventure, following Lipstick and Lies. She lives and writes in Marin County, CA.
