"The Ice Cream Blonde is a riveting mystery about the death of Thelma Todd. It's also an eerie exploration of the Todd dichotomybreezy comedienne on the one hand; serious businesswoman with underworld connections on the other. Highly recommended." Robert Matzen, author of Fireball: Carole Lombard and the Mystery of Flight 3 " The Ice Cream Blonde gives an engaging and balanced look at the fascinating life and notorious death of Thelma Todd. Michelle Morgan proves once again that she is expert researcher who can tackle a controversial subject justly, and through her, Thelma Todd becomes much more than just a scandalous Hollywood footnote." Christina Rice, author Ann Dvorak: Hollywood's Forgotten Rebel "In Ice Cream Blonde , biographer Michelle Morgan shows us why Thelma Todd was so beloved to her family, co-workers, and fans. In the final riveting chapters, Morgan exposes the dangerous world Todd lived in and the shadowy figures she let into her life. Finally, 80 years after her death, we understand why Todd's last days were more unsettling and disturbing than any role Hollywood could have written for her." Michael G. Ankerich, author of Mae Murray: The Girl with the Bee-Stung Lips "I loved [author Michelle] Morgan's writing style; she makes Thelma Todd an accessible human being."
