Sheila Dunham is the, famously offensive host of America's Next Superstar. Celebrity gossip columnists love her. The female contestants on her new reality television show? Not so much. On the first day of shooting, someone fires a gun at her...and misses her. But the woman arrested at the scene isn't involved with the show--and no one knows how she even got past security.

The house where the show's being filmed belongs to the family of Bennis Hannaford, wife of Gregor Demarkian. A former FBI profiler, Gregor has no interest in getting involved in all this Sheila-shooting nonsense. Besides, he has other important business to attend to: The Very Old Ladies in his Armenian-American neighborhood are concerned about a stranger seen at the home of Sophie Mgrdchian, a Very Old Recluse...who is soon found fighting for her last breath. Meanwhile, , the filming of America's Next Superstar is once again interrupted by gunfire--and this time, it's fatal. But the victim is not Sheila Dunham. Yet.

Always so current. And yet, our hero is so old-fashioned and out of touch in other ways. I like how this is about the story, not the detective himself, who kind of muddles through things uncomfortably and somehow makes you feel stupid at the end for not seeing what was really going on.

Oh, it's about girls trying out for some horrid-sounding reality elimination TV show, and it's about how society perceives and treats sick old ladies.
