It's Oscar Time!

The Academy Awards are coming up this Sunday, and earlier than usual at that. If you need some books to get you into the Oscar spirit, try these two mysteries from women who are no strangers to the red carpet themselves.

Los Angeles Times reporter Mary McNamara's debut novel OSCAR SEASON is set at the Pinnacle Hotel where anybody who's anybody in Hollywood stays. PR director Juliette Greyson soon finds herself in the thick of a series of Oscar-related murders and must figure out what's real and what is smoke and mirrors.

Joan Rivers is almost as familiar a part of the Oscar pre-show as the gold statue himself. In her first award show related mystery MURDER AT THE ACADEMY AWARDS, Joan's leading lady Max Taylor has the red carpet interview of the season lined up, until the starlet in question drops dead. Max has to unravel the mystery and find the killer.
