PLAYING DEAD by Lindsay Maracotta
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Jan. 1, 1999

"Even Lucy is unusually subdued, though she does take time to note such worthies as the lady in 'a lemonade-colored pant suit with a double-breasted jacket, tastefully accessorized with discreet pearl earrings, a ruby and grass green chiffon scarf, and a gun.'"
At least it isn't Lucy Freers's producer husband who's been shot to death in his BMW down in Topanga Canyon; it's only her daughter Chloe's live-in nanny, Brandon McKenna. Read full book review >
THE DEAD CELEB by Lindsay Maracotta
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Oct. 1, 1997

"Maracotta's way with a zinger sadly keeps the suspense to a minimum: Why hope Lucy will unmask the killer when you just want her to go on dishing dirt by the yard?"

THE DEAD HOLLYWOOD MOMS SOCIETY by Lindsay Maracotta
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Sept. 1, 1996

"Still, Lucy narrates with edgy, appealing zest, and Maracotta (Everything We Wanted, 1984) name-drops and roman-Ö-clefs her way through the New Hollywood—from the parenting craze to the real-estate game—with a neat satirical spin that only occasionally tips over into slapstick."
Compromising Positions in today's ``family''-oriented, sleazier-than-ever Tinseltown—as a discontented Hollywood wife (and filmmaker in her own right) plays amateur shamus, mostly for laughs, and uncovers kinkiness and nastiness galore in big-time moviedom households. Read full book review >
