Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lonnie Milton has all of life's essential accessory pieces: a 401(K) plan, a nice TV, a coffee table from Pottery Barn. The only thing missing is an actual life. Trapped in a dead-end job, Lonnie meets Claire, the perfect deliverance from his safe, boring, and even worse, ordinary life. Sucked into the swirling L.A. nightlife. Lonnie quickly graduates from Claire's admirer to her accomplice. Together they pillage the town's hottest spots, kissing cheeks with Hollywood's power players, show runners and stars at SkyBar and Spago before their mendacity runs out. Alone, Lonnie discovers he has become an underground legend, his actions spawning a cult following of imitators as he careens toward an inescapable, explosive climax.

In Los Angeles, it isn't who you are, it's where you're seated...

Synopsis:

When Lonnie Milton meets Claire, his hum-drum life takes a turn in the swirling nightlife of Los Angeles. Dark, fast and brutally incisive, "Fake Liar Cheat" takes sharp aim at Los Angeles' cult of personality, laying bare the tabloid society and exposing the collective national confusion between fame and notoriety, style and substance.
