What Remains of Me by A L Gaylin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
June 1980: 17-year-old Kelly Lund is jailed for killing Hollywood film director, John McFadden Thirty years later, Kelly is a free woman. Yet speculation still swirls over what really happened that night. And when her father-in law, and close friend of McFadden is found dead – shot through the head at point-blank range – there can only be one suspect.
But this time Kelly has some high-profile friends who believe she’s innocent of both crimes.
This was a very different setting to the normal thrillers I write. Set in the world of Hollywood in the 1980’s the book revolves around the children of film stars. They manage to run fairly wild without much adult supervision and it is from here that all starts to go wrong. Kelly is not really of their world, her father being a less than successful stunt man and a mother who refuses to let her daughter be pulled into that world. But pulled she is and that’s when things, inevitably, go wrong. A compelling novel I found hard to put down.
I received a copy of this book via Netgalley.
