When disgraced tabloid journalist Jackson Hardy finds Madame Blue, a lonely and senile old spirit, he sees his ticket back to the top. But by manipulating the ghost into uncovering Hollywood’s biggest secrets, he finds himself in the crosshairs of every celebrity whose career he destroys. After uncovering the bizarre double life of aging action star Zachary Bachman, Jr., Hardy’s long-suppressed journalistic integrity begins to emerge. Finding the truth, however, will lead him into the city’s gritty underbelly, and breaking through the very illusionary notion of privacy. Mixing modern wit with hard-boiled noir, and the supernatural with low-level grunt work, Bad Publicity has been called “a lively introduction to a writer with a seemingly boundless imagination." (Shawn Vestal, author of Godforsaken Idaho and Daredevils)
