Diana Gould's mystery "Coldwater" offers detailed insights into the world of Hollywood, and no wonder, since the author has a terrific background working in that setting. The main character in the book is not especially likable in the beginning, but very soon the reader begins to root for her to succeed in getting "clean" on all fronts. All of Gould's characters are so well developed the reader gets involved in their lives. This is an especially smooth first novel that leaves the reader anticipating the next one.

Can she find Julie in the depraved world that killed Julie's friend... or will Julie be lost as well in the destitute violence that took her friends like... His is a quick read with an enthralling story line of Star and production? Brett joins forces with two private investigators but cab she trust either of them?
Normally a debut novel I avoid however this is one I am glad I did not miss. Diana Gould has made a great start and more like this will be extremely welcome. A story of an addict and the struggle to get clean and all the emotions and hardships that come with it. Set in Hollywood's tv and film business, Brett Tanager script writer falls from grace and battles back motivated by her step daughter. It is a gripping thriller in the Hollywood tv detective style, written in a way that keeps you wanting to turn the pages. Apart from the story the book effectively highlights the plight of drug and alcohol addicts, by detailing some of damage done to others connected and unconnected. This is a serious topic but handled well. Recommended
very smart, very cool feminist noir. great page turner.
