Publisher Comments:

Get Shorty's Chili Palmer is back. No more Mr. Nice Guy.

After a smash hit in Get Leo and a flop in Get Lost, B-movie-producer Chili Palmer is looking for another score. Lunching with a record company executive, Chili's exploring a hot new idea--until the exec, a former associate from Chili's Brooklyn days, gets whacked while eating his grilled pesto chicken. Lucky Chili wasn't around for dessert.

Segue from real life to reel life. Chili's found his plot. It's a slam-bang opener: the rubout of a record company mogul. Cut to an ambitious wannabe singer named Linda Moon. She has attitude and a band. She's perfect. Zoom into reality. Linda's manager thinks Chili's poaching and he's out to get even, with the help of his switch-hitting Samoan bodyguard. But somebody else beat them to the punch, as Chili discovers when he gets home and finds a corpse at his desk. Somebody made a mistake. . . .

Synopsis:

Chili Palmer, the Miami loan shark from "Get Shorty, " has resurfaced in a new town and la-la land will never be the same. With a slam-bang idea for a new flick, Chili slides into L.A.'s pop music business--the cutting edge of cool. A dinner companion gets whacked, leaving Chili with the bill and the perfect plot for his film. "Devastatingly funny and dead-on accurate."--"Chicago Tribune."
