Loved the book, Killing Paparazzi, just love Nina Zero books. Also read, burning Garbo, by Robvert Eversz : also great reading. Eversz does a nice job of providing a complex psychological portrait of an anti-social female hero and the bottom feeders who are her associates. His writing is articulate and smoothly crafted. I wanted to see the origins of this violent predatory felon and how Eversz makes the transition.

Killing Paparazzi book. The husband is a Brit and paparazzi. Nina joins their ranks but when someone starts killing the paparazzi, including her new "husband," Nina decides to find out why. There's no question that Eversz knows how to convey Los Angeles with a wonderful satirical eye.

Killing Paparazzi - Robert M. Eversz. 1. The horn sounds before dawn when you’re paroled, as it does every morning. You stand at the bars for prisoner count and when the hundred bolts on your block fire back you step out of your cell and walk in silent two-by-two down a concrete corridor to the same breakfast you’ve eaten for the last year, two years, twenty years, however long you’ve been resident. But it’s not like any other morning, you see that on the face of every inmate you meet. You don’t belong any more. You’re not one of them.

Praise for Killing Paparazzi. Robert M. Eversz lived in Los Angeles for more than a decade, working in Hollywood and its fringes, before packing it in for his current home in Prague. Can a heroine whose tire-iron yearns for kneecaps still seem vulnerable and cuddly? Sure. Eversz may have pinned Nina down in the noir part of LA and given her heart to her abusive daddy, but if she moved to Trenton, she and Stephanie Plum would be the two most adorably dangerous gals in town.

After serving a prison sentence for single-handedly blowing up LAX airport - by mistake - she finds on her release that the world just won't allow her to lead a simple life

Nina Zero is a girl who attracts trouble. Serious trouble of the guns-a-blazing, knife in the back variety. After serving a prison sentence for single-handedly blowing up LAX airport - by mistake - she finds on her release that the world just won't allow her to lead a simple life. The "electrifying" demise of heavy metal group Death Row in a hotel hot-tub gives Nina the opportunity to launch a new career as a paparazza - but all too soon the shine of her glamorous job begins to tarnish with the chilling realization that someone is killing Los Angeles' paparazzi. While the corpses of her competition pile up around L.A. Nina takes it upon herself to track down the killer, becoming prey for both the police and the murderer. While searching for the killer she manages to squeeze in an off-the-wall green card wedding, a guest appearance on the docu-soap, Meat Wagon, and a walk-on part in a longstanding family feud. At turns hilarious and thrilling, with a pace as fast as the paparazzi's flashbulb, Killing Paparrazi is no normal trip down the red carpet.

[NOTE: I first posted this review at the end of 2001, shortly after the book was published. It somehow disappeared from Amazon, so I'm reposting it.]

Mary Alice Baker, whom we met in _Shooting Elvis_ as she was transformed into Nina Zero, is on parole now after five years in a California prison. She's certainly not the same person she was, even after her borderline personality began to slide downhill under the pressure of events in the earlier book, but she really is trying to get her life together -- at least at first. To get a grubstake, she has agreed to a "green card marriage" to an English photographer, but after meeting him in Las Vegas, she discovers she really cares about Gabe, a leading LA paparazzi. Nina, a talented photographer, gets into the business, too -- but then Gabe, whom she already has reasons not to trust, turns up dead. Nina takes it personally and the semi-psychopathic side of her, the result of a childhood with her abusive father, begins to take over her life. This is, in many ways, more of a straight whodunit than the first book, since we already know something about the lead character, but it's very, very well done. The plotting is excellent and the characterization, as before, is terrific. And Nina has definitely become a scary person. But I think it would be a mistake for Eversz to try to continue this into a series. I hope he knows when to quit.

When Nina Zero was Mary Alice Baker she swears she was a good girl. A stud here and a stud there turned her into what she is today. Finally after serving five years for blowing up a section of LAX airport that she insists was an accident Nina is paroled.
Unable to obtain work and written off as a terrorist by friends and family, Nina agrees to marry English photographer Gabriel Burns for two thousand dollars and a weekend in Vegas so that the Paparazzi can obtain a green card. Nina takes pictures of a heavy-metal band electrocuted in a hotel hot tub that she sells to an agency. This gives her the impetus to start a new career as a paparazzi. However, when her new husband's body is found battered, Nina resolves to find the killer. Is Los Angeles big enough to handle a Nina earthquake off the Richter Scale?
KILLING PAPARAZZI is a visual satire that leaves few prisoners as much of Southern California media life is exposed to humorous ridicule. The story line tosses rocks at many an icon as Nina does what she does best, cause havoc. However, this mystery is not for everyone because the plot and its references to the previous tale SHOOTING ELVIS loses some of its off the wall edge as it will remind much of the audience of 9/11.

Nina Zero is the hero of a series of violent and pessimistic mystery thrillers set in modern Los Angeles. In this latest installment, this fierce ex-con with poor impulse control kidnaps a series of people in her car trunk and drives them to isolated places to interrogate them--admittedly Nina is much provoked by brutal and venal ruffians before employing this and other vicious tactics.

Eversz does a nice job of providing a complex psychological portrait of an anti-social female hero and the bottom feeders who are her associates. His writing is articulate and smoothly crafted. The book was interesting enough that I ordered the first book of the series "Killing Elvis" to see how this hero started out. According to "Killing Paparazzi", Nina was a nice girl before she went to prison for murder for five years. I wanted to see the origins of this violent predatory felon and how Eversz makes the transition.

I didn't get a chance to read `Shooting Elvis', but I certainly enjoyed this latest Nina Zero novel.
Nina Zero, out on parole after serving five years in prison, has a deal set up to marry an Englishman for two thousand dollars, so he can have his green card. She agrees because she obviously needs the money. Little does she know the trouble she's getting into. Her husband is found murdered, and it seems to be because of some pictures he's taken. Having been a paparazzo, her dead husband seems to have made some powerful enemies. She's not afraid to find out who they might be.
A well written mystery. The dialogue as well as the narration kept my attention on the story.
Recommended.

Robert Eversz's heroine, Nina Zero, rates at the top of tough, ass kicking females. A detective by default in this one Nina works her way through a taughtly drawn plot written by an expert. "KP" is a very satisfying read for anyone looking for fresh air in a detective novel. LA never looked seedier (or more interesting) from the standpoint of movie stars, politicians and their slimy paparazzi counterparts. Nina Zero (and Mr. Eversz) deserves a long series of successful novels. Read this one, its an excellent book.

I found this book to be a real page-turner. I honestly could not put it down. I just got it a few days ago, and I'm back on this site looking for more from this author. The book was a gift, and I didn't know that the protagonist was developed in an eariler novel. It didn't matter that I hadn't (yet) read the first one though. In fact, maybe it's better because it made me want to go back and find out more about this sassy woman!
