Synopsis

Stardust is a large, richly textured novel about the rise and fall of the biggest rock star ever - and his daughter, who in the shadow of his legend must fight the forces - distant and near - who want to destroy her. C. C. McCarty seemed to have no escape from the slums of Dallas until a high school music teacher unleashed C. C.'s unique - and salable - musical talent, as well as his raging sexuality. When one woman, Valentina Trent, tried to sign him to more than a recording contract, C. C. rejected the sexual strings attached and made an enemy for life. C. C.'s rise on the rock-and-roll charts was fast, furious. But Valentina would stop at nothing to destroy rock's greatest star. Ultimately, she does. It is up to C. C.'s daughter, Laura Kay, to pick up the pieces of her father's legend and take Valentina on her terms.

Neither the frenzied world of rock 'n' roll nor the outsized Texas mentality are portrayed well enough to lift Ryan's seventh novel a step above pedestrian. C.C. McCarty was a poor boy from West Dalla
