Synopsis

When celebrity biographer Randall Capri writes a lurid and unauthorized bio of the late Rod Preston, a virile movie star of the fifties and sixties, he sets in motion a deadly chain of events. Preston’s naive daughter, Charlotte, hires Benjamin Justice to salvage her father's good name by ghost writing an expose of him. After finding Charlotte dead, an apparent suicide, Justice begins to have his doubts about how she died. Working with reporter Alexandra Templeton, he begins an investigation that takes him from the wealthy hillside enclaves of Montecito to the gay bars of Tijuana as he searches for the truth—and a young witness named Chucho Pernales, who has fled back to Mexico in fear for his life.Along the way, Justice stumbles into a ring of wealthy Hollywood pedophiles—a group of men connected to the late Rod Preston, and possibly to Charlotte Preston’s death. While Justice copes with a life-threatening health crisis and struggles to clear himself of suspicion, his search for the killer propels him behind the locked gates of a mysterious compound in the remote California desert—and to evidence of evil beyond imagination. Reprint.
