Time Lapse

While shooting The Lazarus Gambit, on location in a small upstate New york town, the superstar actor, Henry Brook drowns mysteriously. Since both the actor and the film were insured by Independence Mutual, the company wants to make sure the accident was just that. Anna Peters, the head of Executive Security and a film buff, is hired to look into Henry Brook's death and soon learns more than she wanted to know about his megastar ego and unsavory personal habits.

"Sophisticated and believable entertainment..."Publisher's Weekly



A high profile arson-murder case is not in her usual pro bono line, but Anna Peters is intrigued by the anonymous caller soliciting her aid in clearing an immigrant housekeeper in the death of her wealthy employer. Anna soon find a trail from Washington, D.C. to Tucson that's littered with dirty money, deception, and death.
