When his best friend, Roxanne Wilde, is murdered and he is the last to see her alive, Hollywood heartthrob Anderson Stone is snatched from his comfortable life of wealth and fame. Riddled with grief, he is determined to seek the truth behind her death — and when bold FBI agent Jade Sawyer makes him an offer he can’t refuse, he just might get the chance.

But upon embarking on an undercover operation where Jade and Anderson must pretend to be a couple, Anderson soon finds out that there’s more to Roxanne’s demise than meets the eye. A secret underground society of Hollywood elites named the Dawn has been festering through LA for decades, rife with debauchery and criminal activity that just about everyone he knows seems to be involved in.

As they waltz their way into VIP rooms and exclusive masquerade balls, Jade and Anderson begin to uncover the truth behind everyone’s favourite stars.
