The Producer's Girl
Worlds collide. A bully D-list Hollywood producer is desperate to save his shaky film empire. A cooled-out private eye has become his personal go-to girl for every jam he gets himself into. A savvy Boston cop attends two murder scenes the same morning and senses a connection -- to someone taking care of drug business. A secretive blade-happy cartel is flooding the north east with junk.

Bobbi Stratos PI is everyone’s go-to girl now facing burnout. What she needs is a holiday. What she gets is to be thrown blind into a messy movieland multiple homicide case with a bully film producer and all his baggage, an individualistic cop obsessed with a little girl’s murder, a sadistic hit man whose specialty is knife work, and a body count that just keeps rising.
Trouble begins when a little drug runner girl is found murdered the same night Hollywood line producer Lenny Danko’s career gets a big push—right off the rooftop over at the FilmLands buildings on Boston’s east side. Det. Ty Connell attends both scenes, senses a shadowy drug link in the two, and begins working both cases.
Danko's death—and secrets that didn’t die with him—rattle skeletons all the way down to L.A. where Lou Lazar, neurotic studio boss of Bugatti Films, goes into full panic mode. He sends Bobbi to Boston at big bucks to sort out the financial mess Danko has left, contain the PR disaster, and keep it off the evening news. Oh, and get close to the cop on the case and stay plugged in to what police know. Bobbi walks off the plane and straight into Connell's life.
From a competitive start with certain instant attraction issues between them, the real question is: can they work together well enough to bring down a sadistic killer?
