About the Author
Sarah James studied fine art at Goldsmiths College and Wimbledon School of Art, with further training in counselling and complementary health care.
"This vibrant, utterly delightful mystery expertly captures the drama, glamour and absurdity of wartime Hollywood. Sarah James's swift dialogue, dry wit and clever characters transport you into a 1940s movie, where the jokes are quick, the love affairs scandalous and the cast as charming as they are flawed. Underneath it all, James's deep knowledge of the era's movies and music lends an authenticity that makes the rest shine even brighter. I laughed, I gasped and I never wanted it to end. This should head straight to the top of every must-read list." -- Brianna Labuskes, author of The Librarian of Burned Books
"Glamorous and suspenseful in equal measure, Sarah James has delivered a story that is both a delight and a puzzle readers will clamor to solve." -- Marie Benedict, New York Times bestselling author of The Only Woman in the Room and The Mitford Affair
"A cast of unique and witty characters who all quickly become suspects...the humor and Hollywood absurdity keep the story suspenseful without it getting too dark. An atmospheric Hollywood whodunit for fans of Kate Alcott and Marie Benedict." -- Library Journal
"The Last Night at the Hollywood Canteen delivers the humor, wit, and dazzle of WWII-era Hollywoodland while asking darker questions about the seductive price of fame and trade-offs artists make to earn a living." -- Lori Rader-Day, award-winning author of Death at Greenway
"Brilliantly captures the essence of Hollywood's golden era...a thrilling exploration of ambition, jealousy, and the dark side of glamour. With engaging characters, a captivating setting, and a relentlessly twisty-turny plot, it's a must-read for fans of both classic whodunits and modern suspense." -- Booklist, STARRED review
