In 1946, movie star wannabe Elizabeth Short traveled to Hollywood to see her name up in lights. Instead, the dark-haired beauty became immortalized as the "Black Dahlia." The heinous crime was never solved. Now, bestselling author Wolfe discovers new evidence and reveals the secrets of the sealed autopsy--buried in the DA's office for more than half a century. Wolfe discloses that the brutal murder was the work of mob leader "Bugsy" Siegel. Wolfe evokes the time, place, and circumstances that led Short down a tangled trail to her death, and unravels the large-scale cover-up, implicating practically an entire city and Hollywood way of life. Short entered a labyrinthine world of Syndicate-run clubs, brothels, casinos, and other shady operations that catered to Hollywood's elite and preyed on naive, ambitious beauties. The trouble began when she found herself pregnant with the child of the most powerful political figure in the city, Norman Chandler.--From publisher description
