As soon as the listener crosses the imaginary boundary that Bruno Bettleheim called the "suspension of disbelief," the fast-paced, zany, and thoroughly engaging world of Sammy Keyes is encountered. In this latest mystery, Sammy and her companion, Marissa, set off for a whirlwind weekend in Hollywood. There they hope to shed light on the whereabouts of Lady Lana (Sammy's mother), who has stranded Sammy at her grandmother's apartment as she pursues her dream of becoming an actress. Tara Sands skillfully takes the characters beyond the mundane through her impressive ability to speak in many voices--supercilious, sarcastic, and sincere. While delivering nonstop action, she underscores the notion that strength and beauty of character are more than skin deep. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
