Kendall Monroe is handcuffed to a car in the desert.
Is this life imitating art or art imitating life? The only thing he’s sure of is that the situation he finds himself in is a copy of a scene he filmed earlier, only this time, there is no director yelling “cut” and no crew to rescue him. Terrified for his life, Kendall takes comfort remembering happier times with his longtime lover, Johnny. He hasn’t seen Johnny in weeks since Johnny stayed behind to finish his latest best-selling novel.
As he attempts to survive scorching-hot days and freezing nights, Kendall tries to figure out who did this to him. Could it be Johnny, or the research assistant he suspects Johnny is having an affair with? Both options fill him with bitterness. Or is it a more likely suspect? Kendall has a stalker who sends him flowers and always seems to know where he is. But what does this stranger have to gain by leaving Kendall stranded in the middle of nowhere?
I loved this book! I have always been a fan of Andrew Grey, but I’ve got to say if I was to pick a favorite of his, this one would be it!
The blurb tells you about the dilemma Kendall finds himself in. Andrew Grey does a great job at putting you inside Kendall’s head. He’s alone in Hollywood with no friend and making a movie for the first time. The man he loves more than life in back in New York and is too busy with his own book and assistant to come be with Kendall. Through the years their careers has kept them very busy and they’ve slowly grown apart. Kendall is always respectful of other people and lives by the creed to always treat other people how you want to be treated.
Now this is what is so fascinating about the situation Kendall finds himself in…why would Johnny want to hurt him? OR…Why would one of his fellow actors or crew members want to hurt him? Who is sending him flowers? We go through all these questions with Kendall as he’s handcuffed in this car and see how he starts losing his mind. I won’t say more because I don’t want to give away what Andrew Grey so meticulously wrote. Take my advice and Buy The Book!
