Dead Famous - Ben Elton

Good book. Enjoyable read but not too high level. I enjoy his murder mystery novels.

Switched at birth, neither Chelsea Hutton nor Cassidy English ended up having a happy childhood. Chelsea, the biological daughter of a beautiful but insane movie star, is raised in abject poverty by the overly religious former starlet Maria Hutton. Cassidy, sent home with the deranged Lana Turmaine and her movie mogul husband, witnesses Lana's murder, and her testimony lands her dad in prison. A chilling tale of revenge set in glitzy Beverly Hills and the movie industry and written by Victoria Gotti. I usually do not read fiction, but this one seems particularly appealing since it is set in my kind of town and got very good reviews. On my wish list for Christmas!

The new Val McDermid is out in the UK and will be released here in the US in Feb. 2007. The story is a superb psychological thriller in which present-day murder has its roots in the eighteenth century and the mutiny on the Bounty. When torrential summer rains uncover a bizarrely tattooed body on a Lake District hillside, old wives' tales also come swirling to the surface. For centuries Lakelanders have whispered that Fletcher Christian staged the massacre on Pitcairn so that he could return home. And there he told his story to an old friend and schoolmate, William Wordsworth, who turned it into a long narrative poem - a poem that remained hidden lest it expose Wordsworth to the gallows for harbouring a fugitive. Wordsworth specialist Jane Gresham, herself a native of the Lake District, feels compelled to discover once and for all whether the manuscript ever existed - and whether it still exists today. But as she pursues each new lead, death follows hard on her heels. Suddenly Jane is at the heart of a 200-year-old mystery that still has the power to put lives on the line. Against the dramatic backdrop of England's Lake District a drama of life and death plays out, its ultimate prize a bounty worth millions. I cannot wait to get my hands on this one... Pre-ordered on Amazon.
