It's 1955, and Edna Ferber is basking in the success of her novel Giant. Headed to Los Angeles, where director George Stevens and Warner Brothers Studio are in the final days of filming her Texas oil epic, she is looking forward to meeting the stars-especially the young James Dean. But there is trouble brewing. Dean has been accused of fathering a child with an unstable (and recently fired) extra named Carisa Krausse. Then when the actress is murdered, James Dean is the prime suspect. With actress Mercedes McCambridge as her sidekick, Edna investigates. As she delves into Hollywood's dark side, she discovers a powerful studio obsessed with a cover-up and a solution she doesn't want to accept-a solution that she, in fact, dreads. Ed Ifkovic taught literature and creative writing at a community college in Connecticut for more than 30 years. Now retired, he devotes himself to writing fiction. Lone Star is his debut novel.

Praise for Make Believe... "A pure delight." -Jeffery Deaver award-winning author of The Bodies Left Behind In 1951, Edna Ferber heads to Hollywood to support her friend Max Jeffries, who has been blacklisted because of his supposedly Communist leanings. Edna first met Max on the 1927 Broadway production of Show Boat, and now he is being "uncredited" from the new film pro-duction starring Ava Gardner. When Max is murdered, Edna quietly begins investigating. Max was killed right after a brawl with Frank Sinatra, who is having an affair with Ava Gardner. Ava fears her lover will be arrested, but Edna feels for the vulnerable and insecure star. Soon Edna uncovers layers of greed, envy, and desire...and Max's murderer. Ed Ifkovic taught literature and creative writing at a community college in Connecticut for more than three decades. Make Believe is his third Edna Ferber Mystery.
