Synopsis

That and more in this new thrill ride from bestselling author Robert S. Levinson, where all that glitters is not gold in the Golden Age of Hollywood after ex-LAPD detective Chris Blanchard goes to work for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios mogul Louis B. Mayer and stumbles into the murders of Photographer to the Stars Otto Rothman and B-movie actor Day Covington.


Bodies fall and hidden truths emerge as Blanchard battles his way through life-threatening reversals that make it difficult to separate his friends from his enemies, including the notorious gangster Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel; Tyrone Powell, a Munchkin in The Wizard of Oz, who might be leading a double life; movie bad guy George Raft; and MGM luminaries such as director George Cukor, one-time matinee idol William Haines, and Howard Strickling, Mayer s loyal fixer, a keeper of secrets who knows where the bodies are buried.
