PAT NORELLI’S tough, beautiful & a real smart-ass
It’s Oscar night in Hollywood, and after years of climbing the entertainment ladder, media darling, Meredith Johansen has finally taken home a gold statue.
Across town, working the late shift, Detective Pat Norelli is trying to break through her own glass ceiling in the LAPD.
Johansen and Norelli’s paths collide, when Johansen is found dead in a pool of blood the next morning in her Bel Air home. With a note, but no clues, LAPD rule it a suicide.
Detective Norelli, unwilling to ignore her suspicions of Meredith’s suicide, talks her way into lead detective on the case, placing her career and pending promotion in an all-or-nothing scenario.
Under mounting pressure from the department, and as several key suspects turn up dead, Norelli and long-time partner, Detective Stuart Brown, find themselves in an endless series of lies, deceits and questionable behavior.
With more dead bodies than leads, has Norelli’s insatiable appetite to be one-of-the-guys in the LAPD jeopardized her career, and put her in the crosshairs of a pathological killer?
