Come see ‘HOLLYWOOD BLVD.’ Visit the land of technicolor dreams, where sidewalk stars shine under foot. Come see the wanna-be movie stars who toil away on Hollywood Boulevard, playing superheroes for the wide-eyed tourist picture takers.

Say hello to one of the Boulevard’s superheroes - a washed-up actress named Megan, who spiked away any career opportunity by junking up her veins. Now clean, Megan leads an unfulfilled life.

Luckily Megan has an angel in the city of - a kindhearted man whose love helped her slay her speedball demons. But when this caring man disappears and the cops peg him as just another wannabe screenwriter snuffed out on the boulevard of broken dreams, Megan decides to investigate.

Although in over her head, Megan displays a startling range of awareness as she sinks into the cess pool of the investigation – an investigation that leads to a posh strip club, film production offices, sort-of interested flatfoots, a long-dead former movie star’s ruinous tinsel-town scandal and an alluring femme fatale.
Megan ties the murder to Hollywood’s dark past, a current trafficking ring, a residual payment scheme and to corrupt movie producers.

So visit this ‘HOLLYWOOD BLVD.’ and experience a hardboiled action thriller with a protagonist who discovers she truly is a good enough person for any world – including Hollywood.
