The bright lights of show biz
for Nancy and Bess
Imagine — a chance to work as extras on TV’s top soap opera, with America’s heartthrob, Rick Arlen! Bess is dazzled when she and Nancy are invited on the show by Rick’s beautiful co-star Mattie Jensen. She’s alarmed because the handsome actor has received some nasty threats — from a slashed photo to doctored chocolates.
The teen detective soon uncovers a real-life drama backstage. There’s a hotheaded director, a cast-off agent, and a few ex-girlfriends who all have reason to hate Rick. But only one of them wants him out of the way permanently. Nancy has to break this case fast — before Rick breaks Bess’ heart.
