Aspiring actress Sasha McCleod has gotten the opportunity of a lifetime: a starring role in a visionary filmmaker’s comeback feature—but there’s a catch [Description]Sasha McCleod has always held more than a passing resemblance to movie star Leslie Parrish, and has been turned down for role after role as a result. Then, an hour after Sasha gets an inquiry into her immediate availability to audition for a secret project, she finds herself standing on a faintly lit stage, staring into a black void illuminated only by the flicker of a cigarette, a stranger’s foreign, seductive voice probing her. Casting Sasha will save cult director Marc Andre Renaud’s film, but he resists her, unsettled by her likeness to Leslie, with whom he has just ended a heated relationship that was both personal and professional. To announce Leslie’s departure would mean an end to the film, so he is forced to offer Sasha the role, and invite her to participate in a dangerous charade, as both his star and lover. It’s a role Sasha cannot refuse, and as she sinks deeper and deeper into her impersonation of Leslie she is lead into ever more provocative territory. This e-book features an illustrated biography of Suzanne Forster including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
