The year is 1961. The place is Berlin, where the East German government reports “no plans to close the borders.” And disgraced Hollywood starlet Pagan Jones is about to be released from juvie and sent to film a new movie in the shadow of the Berlin Wall...
Pagan Jones went from America’s sweetheart to fallen angel one fateful night when she drove drunk and killed her family. Nine months later, she’s stuck in reform school and tortured by guilt.
But second chances can come even in the darkest times. Pagan’s old agent shows up with a mysterious studio executive, Devin Black, and an offer: Pagan will be released if she accepts a juicy role in a new film by an award-winning director. The shoot starts in West Berlin in just three days.
The offer’s too good to be true. Berlin’s in turmoil, and Pagan’s court-appointed guardianDevin Blackknows way too much about her. Something fishy’s going on. But if anyone can take on a divided city, a scheming guardian and the criticism of a world that once adored her, it’s the notorious Pagan Jones.
