Jon Stewart speaking on bullying and the mob mentality
Author: Lisa Beth Darling
Lizzie Love wrote a novel and her whole life changed. Elizabeth Love has been trapped in a sexually and physically abusive marriage to her husband, Scott Travers, for the last two decades. To escape the oppression of her life, Lizzie turns to writing stories based on her favorite TV show Through the Mirror. Happily publishing her stories on the web she finds friends and fans outside of her depressing home life. Michael Gray a/k/a Dennis Johnson of Through the Mirror fame has just lost his job. The show has been canceled after 10 years on the air and he is now faced with the unenviable task of looking for work as he tries to break out of the genre of science fiction and being type cast as the 'nerdy geeky doctor'. Married to the diva Gabriella Phideaux for the last four years, they have two children whom Michael adores but Gabby could do without.
With the her favorite show going off the air, Lizzie writes an original novel "The Shaw Street Strangler" which is quite out of character for her and the darkly erotic material she's come to write about Dennis over the years. Breaking out of the mold the book is a smash but not everyone is happy when Lizzie is forced to stop writing her Through the Mirror stories and soon the threats pour in to the offices of Pauline Depoix, a high-powered literary agent who's taken Lizzie on as a client. When the novel hits, Michael sees his way out of second-rate roles on second-rate television shows. He jumps off the page and into Lizzie's life as he helps her write the movie script. Much against the warnings of her husband, Scott, and Lizzie's better judgment, romance blossoms under the hot California sun.
All is not well as a shadowy figure from the Internet known to Lizzie only as Masked Panty Raider sets out to get her and her Through the Mirror stories back. Adopting the persona of Eddie from Elizabeth's novel he stalks her over the Internet and into the Real World, following her from her home in Connecticut to British Columbia and a cozy cabin where Michael and Lizzie are snowed in alone together for three days. Finally The Masked Panty Raider follows her to Hollywood and the set of "The Shaw Street Strangler".
But who is the Masked Panty Raider? Just some whack-job from the Internet? Someone from Lizzie's past? Scott? Randy "The Adonis"? Or is it....perhaps....Michael?
Sweeping romance combined with drama and suspense will keep you turning pages until you find out Whodunit.
