Book 1

Pay to get in,
Pray to get out.

Johnny Silver is the world's soon-to-be biggest rock star, but on the eve of his debut concert in Los Angeles, he mysteriously disappears, causing global pandemonium. His friend Taj tries to discover the truth about his disappearance, which leads her to and its shadowy founder, Sutton Werner, who throws the wildest parties in Bel-Air.

TAP started out innocently enough, as a website that dishes the dirt on the kids of Sunset Boulevard and beyond. But it has become something more. Membership is a privilege with responsibilities and consequences.

At Sutton's parties, anything goes, especially in the legendary backroom rituals nicknamed The Angels Practice. Rumors abound of a special drink handed out at the parties that tap into otherworldly sensations.

One night Taj meets Nick, a Westside preppie who doesn't buy into the TAP mayhem, especially since his kid sister never came home from attending one of its blow-out bashes. Slowly the two of them are drawn to TAP and to each other. But Taj just might know more than she's letting on....

Are you ready for the darker side of Tinsel-town's brightest lights?

Angels Lie

by Melissa de la Cruz

Published 27 October 2009
The Angels Practice, or TAP as it's known to its members is the kind of cult that doesn't exist. Not that anyone can see, anyway. It's not a religion, so there are no churches; it's not a science so there are no rules; it's not written in a book or on pamphlets and there are no preachers, salesmen, magicians or prophets. All you need to know is that it will define who you are and what you will become, so you had better get it right. TAP can give you everything, but it wants everything in return: money, loyalty, absolute obedience. Taj and Nick seem to be the only people who aren't buying into the TAP culture, and when the people closest to them start to disappear into its vortex, they discover something far more sinister. It appears that TAP has plans for its members, and like it or not, there's no way out. As Taj and Nick frantically search for a way to reach the lost souls who have been tapped, the Angels Practice tightens its hold. Can they resist the lure of TAP's dark side and uncover the truth before they too disappear? TAP mythology began with Angels on Sunset Boulevard, and now this great new bind-up completes the edgy and compelling story.
