Birdie Walker—rock widow, con-woman, aging wild child—now lives by her wits. Unsentimental self-interest sees her through, but no one could call it pretty. Twenty years ago, she and her now-deceased rock star lover were the most famous couple alive. The public treasures its outrageous memories, but she’s still the woman everyone loves to hate. Media darling, media demon, she fights with fame and infamy alike. But when music biz executives get wind that she’s hiding valuable, never-released tapes, Birdie learns exactly what it takes to survive them.

Liza Cody worked as a furniture-maker, photographer, painter, graphic designer, and assistant at Madame Tussauds before turning to crime writing. She’s won a Silver Dagger and a John Creasey/Crime Writers’ Association Award, and has been nominated for Edgar Awards and shortlisted for a Gold Dagger. The popular TV series based on her Anna Lee mysteries was aired by A&E.
