CLOSE UP is Kit Sloane's latest chapter in the the MARGOT & MAX MYSTERIES series...the one that gives us a peek at the escapades of that Hollywood power couple...Max, the movie mogul and Margot, tinsel town's most sought-after film editor.
Here's a blurb on the story: Margot and Max know how to cope with the murderous egos, high flying aspirations, and obsessive dreams of moviedom’s biggest and most revered stars.
They understand that, for some, Hollywood is a takeout heaven—send out for what you want and it will quickly be delivered. But what happens when what is coveted doesn’t grow on trees?
In CLOSE-UP, our daring hero and heroine witness greedy players scheming to cultivate their own needs and desires—fabricating fame, fortune, and unfaithful friends.
CLOSE UP is the ninth in the series, but no worries! Each title stands alone...you won't be disadvantaged if you are hopping in here, although you just might be tempted to go back to the beginning and read them all.
The Margot & Max covers have a story of their own...each one is an original illustration, crafted to suit the story by Kit's daughter, Annie Sperling who is herself, a movie business pro.
