The glamour of Jackie Collins meets the grit of Martina Cole in the dark heart of a sun-bleached Los Angeles.


In front of a galaxy of stars, three young film makers accept their Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
Davie Johnston, Zander Leith and Mirren McLean, childhood friends from a rough housing estate in Glasgow, have taken Hollywood by storm.
Only they know what they did to get there. . .

Twenty years later Davie is the top host and reality show producer in town. Mirren is a respected writer and movie director and Zander is box office gold. But they haven't spoken to each other in twenty years, their relationships devastated by one horrific secret.
Thousands of miles away, in a town where nothing is as it seems, a young ambitious journalist discovers a tantalizing story from the past. Tinsel Town beckons. She is determined to expose the kind of scandalous drama that usually only happens in the movies.

Jointly written by presenter Ross King and bestselling author Shari Low, Jackie Collins calls Taking Hollywood 'a fun romp behind the Hollywood curtain'. Lorraine Kelly calls it 'a thriller that's gritty, sexy and a sensational page turner'. If you read ONE book this summer, make it this one.

Taking Hollywood is a fun romp behind the Hollywood curtain. The guessing game is in full swing! Scandal, sex and secrets galore!


A glam, edgy thriller. Just the way I like them.


Sexy, dangerous, utterly compelling. Taking Hollywood has you panting for more from page one.
