It’s camera, action, lights-out for a silent-film director
Santa Fe is in the grip of movie fever when director Luther Bishop arrives to film his new silent cowboy flick. Maddie Vaughn-Alwin’s cousin Gwen Astor has a bit part—but Gwen is caught in a whirlwind of mischief before shooting begins. The plot thickens when the detestable director is found hanging in his office.
When it comes to light that Gwen was having a torrid affair with Luther, she’s pegged as the prime suspect. But Maddie, with her keen eye, knows Luther had his fair share of enemies. Luther’s widow coveted her late husband’s director’s chair, head of wardrobe Lorelei Fontaine was denied a promised role, and leading man Harry Kelly was summarily fired on arrival in Santa Fe. For Maddie, every clue reveals another motive.
