Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meet Chick Best—a middle-aged self-absorbed, disaffected, California millionaire. Other than his house and high-priced foreign cars, Chicks most expensive possession is his trophy wife. Evelyn is good at spending Chicks money, money that has pretty much run out. Another problem is his drug-addled sixteen-year-old daughter, Melissa. Though concerned about his life and family, Chick has resigned himself to a miserable state of acceptance. That is, until he, Evelyn, and Melissa take a Christmas vacation in Maui. With this, Chicks life changes...

Chick experiences unrequited love at first sight when he observes Paige Ellis emerging from the hotel swimming pool. His obsession, exceeded only by his need to possess her, isnt diminished when he learns that she is happily married. Instead, he befriends Paige and her near-perfect husband, Chandler. A short time later, back from Hawaii, Chicks obsession compels him to drive to Paiges house, where he runs down and kills Chandler in a drugstore parking lot. But this is just the beginning of Chicks nightmare as his life spirals homicidally out of control, resulting in the destruction of everything he holds dear.


In his newest and most distinctive thriller, Stephen J. Cannell channels his insider experiences into a tautly drawn noir look at the materialistic Hollywood lifestyle.
