Description

The famous actress Melissa Dacy is not a woman to be trifled with. Over the years she has become a household name as the mainstay of Diamond Road, a well-known daytime soap opera. But falling ratings call for drastic measures… when Melissa is murdered, suspicion falls on each of the members of the production team: a team in which it seems every member has something to gain by Melissa’s death… and something to hide.
