Welcome to Burning Cove, California where 1930s Hollywood glamour conceals a ruthless killer…
 
Vivian Brazier never thought life as an art photographer would include nightly wake-up calls to snap photos of grisly crime scenes or headshots for aspiring male actors. Although she is set on a career of transforming photography into a new art form, she knows her current work is what’s paying the bills.
 
After shooting crime scene photos of a famous actress, the latest victim of the murderer the press has dubbed the “Dagger Killer,” Vivian notices eerie similarities to the crime scenes of previous victims—details that only another photographer would have noticed—details that put Vivian at the top of the killer’s target list.
 
Nick Sundridge has always been able to “see” things that others don’t, coping with disturbing dreams and visions. His talent, or as he puts it—his curse—along with his dark past makes him a recluse, but a brilliant investigator. As the only one with the ability to help, Nick is sent to protect Vivian. Together, they discover the Dagger Killer has ties to the glitz and glamour of Hollywood royalty and high society. It is a cutthroat world of allure and deception that Vivian and Nick must traverse—all in order to uncover the killer who will stop at nothing to add them to their gallery of murders.

Our man Giorgio is returning to one of the trade offices via Cannes for plenty of social relaxation after several months in the field. Instead of enjoying the pleasures of rest, Giorgio is sent a sealed message: ‘Return via Athens with immediate effect’. Giorgio teams up with his old friend Emilio to find some secret financial files which have recently been stolen – who took them, and why? The girls in D section who source Giorgio’s messages and keep his secrets are looking forward to his return and looking forward to him livening the place up. Also anticipating Giorgio’s return is a bodyguard who has certain feelings for him, even though he hid her exotic glittery shoes. And the other woman, whose side is she really on? Did she really want Giorgio? All are involved, for good or bad. The secret financial files will open a door to a world of money, and the people that Giorgio and Emilio are tracing all have their own reasons for stealing the files. All characters are caught in the midst of the struggles between love and trust, loss and grief, and the grand lifestyle that they all aspire to. In this lifestyle is a world of power and intrigue, and the invisible wealth of others. A secret, shadowy environment filled with cars, yachts and executive jets. There are some who live even deeper within this lifestyle. In an undefined tenebrous existence in the world of finance, there is always a price to pay, but who will pay this time? In this life of shadows, will they survive, with or without visible scars?
