STAR FLIGHT by Phyllis Whitney (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“Phyllis Whitney is, and always will be, the Grand Master of her craft.” (Barbara Michaels)
A scandalous affair between actress Victoria Frazer and actor Roger Brandt in 1938 had ended with Victoria’s tragic drowning at Lake Lure—and a baby few knew about. That baby became the mother of Lauren Castle. When Lauren’s husband dies mysteriously while making a documentary on Roger Brandt, she must uncover more deadly secrets of the past.
