America's sweetheart has been kidnapped!
It's 1935, and Shirley Temple is the most popular film star in the world, a symbol of hope for millions in the midst of the Great Depression. When the little girl disappears from a train en route to San Francisco, President Roosevelt's multi-talented private secretary, Missy LeHand, joins forces with FBI Agent Corey Wainwright to recover her -- in one harrowing weekend! A devious newspaper reporter, the Irish-American crime boss of San Francisco, members of the Italian underworld, the most notorious madam in the city, and the bombastic head of Shirley's movie studio, Darryl Zanuck, all have roles to play in this fast-paced mystery.
Kelly Durham, author of eight thrillers set against the backdrops of World War II and the Golden Age of Hollywood, and Kathryn Smith, author of Missy LeHand's biography THE GATEKEEPER, team up in this debut Missy LeHand Mystery.
