Acting Obsessed: a novel of compulsion and intrigue, stalking and violence in the historic heart of Philadelphia.

In Ginger Brossard’s life the line that divides obsession from passion seems especially thin and easily crossed. As a young and talented actress with a burning ambition to be on the stage, she embarks on a career with a theater company in Philadelphia. An actor in the company soon displays an unwanted interest in her. When she turns his advances aside, meets an intriguing new man, and then receives a costly and beautiful gift from an anonymous admirer, Ginger finds herself entangled in a web of unanswered questions from the past, lethal danger, and the obsession of an unknown person who may have the power to devastate her life. In the end, she comes face to face with betrayal and violent death.

She soon found what she was looking for: a small cardboard carton hidden behind a pile of loose bubble wrap. Down in the living room she set it carefully on the coffee table and sat.

  “This is the first one?” said Loni. She gave it a little push. “It’s heavy, too.”

  “It’s solid leaded glass. You could kill someone with it...”
