Thank you so much to Kensington Books for giving me an ARC of The Glamorous Dead by Suzanne Gates via Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewI m sorry but 15 I DNF it on 36% and I never DNF any book but this I tried I tried so much but this just didn t pull me I do not recommend this for people who has no idea what s happened in 1930s1940s Hollywood Yes I know I picked p a book set in 1930s Hollywood Yes I know it s going to deal with things I do not know aside from brunettes and blondes in curly bob hairstyles I only knew a bit of that era and wanted to learn but I only learned a bunch of words that didn t make any sense to me It seemed interesting but the author did not explain what those nicknames are and what they are doing Obviously they are shooting for some kind of film and they are extras and all that but I was still in a lossAnother reason I didn t finish this was I didn t feel any suspense orand thrill that this book promises It s a mysterythriller book after all The book immediately starts with Rosemary s body being found told by our narrator and main character Penny Rosemary s best friend The author lays out possible suspects and try to play and confuse the reader from finding the real suspect but it just fell flat for me I didn t even have any interest to know who the real suspect is It may be contributed to the narration I didn t feel any connection on Penny she sounded so distant and rigid I can t feel any of *HER HATE REMORSE SADNESS NOTHING I CAN T EVEN * hate remorse sadness nothing I can t even with her She was bland and flat to meThe writing was also odd for me anyway I feel like I m missing something There are not enough descriptions and it makes you feel lost The dialogues are weird the characters talk about two subjects without any pauses and just confuses you Do they talk like that back then I don t think so Penny is accused of murder and no one seems freaked out They just hate her that s it And when a cop chases you in a subdivision of rich people when you re accused of murder you should freak The Hell Out But No hell out but no just chats with drunk Madge about her family and lets the girl puke in a bush of someone popular while she daydreams of her First Mother I do not get it all And despite her being a murderer she is still able to work WHAT IS HAPPENING WHY DOES NOBODY CARESI never felt any thrill suspense or interest I really tried hard to connect and get myself interested and immersed but I was seriously just in a loss I couldn t stand it any and had to stop reading Most of the action in Suzanne Gates s debut mystery THE GLAMOUROUS DEAD takes place in 1940 on a Hollywood movie set while Preston Sturges films his classic screwball comedy The Lady Eve Between takes and after hours the film s leading lady Barbara Stanwyck plays amateur sleuth to solve the murder of one of the film s extras While the premise sounds like it will be a lightweight comedic mystery along the lines of Stuart M Kaminsky s Toby Peters series or George Baxt s novels featuring real celebrities solving fictional murders Gates s mystery is deadly serious THE GLAMOUROUS DEAD will remind genre lovers of Dorothy B Hughes s darker noir crime fiction especially the fever dream atmosphere and nreliable narrator in.
