    I have now re read the first 4 books I liked them all I like the way she includes LA and California history It always makes me go research what it is based on I really enjoyed this complex plot In this case though there was a bit of a twist at the end that i thought actually was unnecessary.SPOILER ALERTI thought the book could have ended with Ridgeway In fact it took me a bit to link Michelle with Kellenberger but then i realized the link I actually had to go back and re read This is on I have now re read the first 4 books I liked them all I like the way she includes LA and California history It always makes me go research what it is based on I really enjoyed this complex plot In this case though there was a bit of a twist at the end that i thought actually was unnecessary.SPOILER ALERTI thought the book could have ended with Ridgeway In fact it took me a bit to link Michelle with Kellenberger but then i realized the link I actually had to go back and re read This is one of those books that i start to draw a little diagram with the linkages between the characters But i started too late and missed some key ones I never clued in even now to how Joann was linked in though The one thing for me that i am less thrilled with is Maggie and i agree with another reviewer that although i am not a prude and have read my share of bodice rippers with waysex, the sex in these books seems heavy handed And then i realized that i think it is 1980s style woman in a man s world To be just as good as a man she has to be a man She is written as a man Yes yes generalizations I also find Maggie kind of flat There actually seems to be very little passion YEs she talks about how important her film work is but i don t see it in her life There is very little angst as i would expect from an artist But i will keep reading and i believe the next few Maggie books will be undiscovered country for me
