*From Hollywood’s hottest nightclubs to the boardrooms behind the scenes, the trendiest restaurants to the bedrooms of the biggest stars—it’s all here in a steamy murder mystery from the celebrity journalist who knows the entertainment world better than anyone.
In a spectacular excursion through five days of the steamy streets of Black Hollywood, celebrity journalist Flo Anthony uncovers mystery from the boardrooms to bedrooms of Tinseltown’s biggest stars.
“Deadly Stuff Players” (Atria/Strebor Books; On-sale NOW) follows gossip columnist Valerie Rollins and football-hero-turned-private investigator Rome Nyland as they try to find a serial killer. Readers will meet jockeys and racehorse owners, hungry starlets, rappers, reality stars and all six existing Black billionaires who will do anything to get to the top of their game…
Valerie, the most popular African-American gossip columnist in the United States, and NFL Hall of Famer Rome Nyland are the go-to team for solving Hollywood mysteries. Now someone is trying to murder Andrea Dumas, the wife of billionaire Victor Dumas, and threating their son, jockey Vance Dumas. When Andrea is found murdered in a sports bar, suspicions arise.
Roshonda Rhodes, a former hooker, was allegedly seen fleeing a sports bar the night of the murder. Did she kill Andrea? Or is Jermonna Bradley, a notorious drug addict, responsible? Valerie and Rome are hard on the case, determined to get to the bottom of it before the killer strikes again.
