With her background as a touring musician, and years working among celebrities. Anonymous-9 paints a realistic backdrop for her story set in music-industry Los Angeles:
Bern Aldershot, former bass player for the legendary band Aldershot is attacked in a parking lot. His 1965 Rickenbacker bass is stolen, but that's not all. It brings him to the end of his rope. In Bern's ruined world, the only person there to help is a 16-year-old fangirl. Together they hunt his attacker through Los Angeles, piecing together clues from a series of rapes and murders, crossing disbelieving cops and pissed off bikers as Bern's attacker plays 'cat and mouse'.
Anonymous-9's CRASHING THROUGH MIRRORS is one wild, funky adrenaline rushyou don't read it; you inhale it, like Peruvian marching powder on a mirror in the bathroom at the Viper Club, trying to get it all sucked up before the gendarmes bust down the door. This is one mighty talent. My heart's still pounding.

"A novelette that locks you in the moment and smacks you through each page. Great depiction of Los Angeles, good tension in the subplots. I'd love to see this as a full novel. Recommended.
