City of Snares
Hazel crosses an ocean, moving to the City of Dreams, not for stardom or the limelight that
comes from rubbing elbows with celebrities, but for the chance to be her true self. So she’s
stunned when fading star of the silver screen, Diana Blake, wanders into the diner where
she works and declares her intention of turning Hazel into the next, hot ingénue.
Hazel agrees to let Diana mould her into her protege and is thrown headlong into the
Hollywood star machine. Glimmers of sexual interest from Diana keep Hazel on the hook as
she offers herself up, piece by piece to showbusiness. But Diana’s behaviour grows
increasingly controlling, suspicious accidents on set begin to pile up, and Hazel will have to
fight to maintain any shred of herself, lest Hollywood eat her alive.
