Things were just the way they should have been in Abigail Hale's life. Her eighteen-year-old daughter Erica was on her way to college in Tennessee to study anthropology on a scholarship. Abby envisioned spending more time relaxing with her husband now that her only child had flown the nest. But Abby was in for a shock-she arrived home from dropping her daughter at the airport to find that her husband, Donald, was leaving her for another woman and his lawyer insisted that their house must be sold. In an instant, everything she thought she knew about her comfortable life was shattered. Abby-forty and unemployed for twenty years except in the capacity of housewife and mother-must rebuild her life and find work. Abby decides to do the only sensible thing-move to Hollywood to pursue her long-forgotten dream of becoming an actress. She also decides to return to using her maiden name-Whitefeather. With her dark eyes and hair-she is a Native American with a great body-Abby begins to get cast in small parts within months of arriving. Abby can not believe her luck when she lands a small speaking part in the smash soap opera LOVER'S LANE as a chambermaid who was one of the last people to see a murder victim and the suspect together. But art imitates life and Abby becomes the last person to see the victim of a brutal murder-the show's leading man, Dirk Saunders, bludgeoned to death just outside her apartment. Abby's life becomes a suspenseful cat and mouse game with a killer that she can not quite identify-yet.
