Merchant of Venus
A high profile celebrity Hollywood wedding--just the diversion Jane Lawless needs. Recovering from injuries, single again and the dreaded holidays closing in, Jane happily agrees to attend the soiree with her best friend, Cordelia Thorn.
It's not just any wedding--Cordelia's Broadway diva sister Octavia is tying the knot for the third time. Nobody knows how young Octavia Thorn met octogenarian Harold Lester, a recluse relic of Tinseltown's grand old days, and the secret has brought out all the paparazzi. When bodies start to fall, it's clear to Jane that the nuptials have brought out something far more sinister.
Ellen Hart guides Jane Lawless and Cordelia Thorn on another brilliant journey, this time deep into film history for a story that won the series its fourth Lambda Literary Award.
