They say a life well-lived is the best revenge...

Blanche Tucker longs to escape her drop-dead dull life in tiny Boynton, Oklahoma. Then dashing Graham Peyton roars into town. Posing as a film producer, Graham convinces the ambitious but naive teenager to run away with him to a glamorous new life. Instead, Graham uses her as cruelly as a silent picture villain. Yet by luck and by pluck, taking charge of her life, she makes it toHollywood.

Six years later, Blanche has transformed into the celebrated Bianca LaBelle, the reclusive star of a series of adventure films, and Peyton's remains are discovered on a Santa Monica beach. Is there a connection? With all of the twists and turns of a 1920s melodrama, The Wrong Girlfollows the daring exploits of a girl who chases her dream from the farm to old Hollywood, while showing just how risky--and rewarding--it can be to go off script.

Bianca's star may be bright, but she harbors dark secrets. And when Oliver discovers that his mysterious client is the most feared mob boss on the West Coast, he realizes that, like the dead man's body, he's stuck between a rock and hard place"--
