KIRKUS REVIEW

The fixed, perfected formula of hide and seek tuned to high pitch, as murder, recognized and defended against, stalks the cast-bound Chief. A film star must die so that her director may groom a new star, and the four who knew his intent are eventually powerless to stop him. Reprieves and the commonplace travelers accent the restrained violence and lethal attempts, but tension cracks when the criminal is forced to pay for his crimes. Grade A.
