Nicki rated it liked it Jan 06, She is seen leaving the scene, and the police assume that she is an arsonist. Nina has a certain spunk, and yet is quick to observe and question the dark side in all of us. Nina is by no means perfect, but she really tries to live life in a good way. In Burning Garbo: A Nina Zero Novel, Nina Zero is working as a celebrity paparazza when she sees a retired movie star's mansion burn down and is blamed for the fire, and then for murder when bones are found in the ashes. Marston and Cantini then try to track down Burns's killer, plus the money that had belonged to his clients.
Resources and Downloads. Along the way she befriends Angela's niece, Arlanda Cortes; Angela's godfather, Ben Turner; and a retired sheriff's deputy; she also meets a host of suspicious characters, including two brothers with a dark past who are also after Nina.
Eversz noirishly evokes Southern California—"Los Angeles is a city where people move to become someone they imagine themselves to be but aren't yet and most likely never will be"—and, despite frantic pacing and a convoluted plot, creates colorful, well-rounded characters. With plenty of celebrity satire and an ending that confounds expectations, this is a rollicking ride. View Full Version of PW.
More By and About This Author. On the morning of her thirtieth birthday, ex-con-turned-paparazza Nina Zero scales the Malibu hillside above the estate of a reclusive film star who hasn't been seen in a decade.
Within the next few hours, a mysterious gunman shoots her, a deadly brushfire almost smokes her, an arson investigator accuses her, and a toothless Rottweiler adopts her as his new best friend. Accompanied by the toothless Rott, Zero goes on the hunt, compelled to prove that someone else set fire to the star's estate to keep the cops from jailing her for arson and -- when charred bones are discovered in the ashes -- murder.
The killers are equally interested in finding her, and their desperation escalates to a bone-chilling series of violent encounters in which Nina plays hunter one moment and prey the next. Selected pages Title Page. Contents Section 1.
