Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ben Crandel, a half-successful porno novelist, has come to Los angeles to make his mark in the movie business. In short order, his young friend Vicky, a former prostitute, is beaten, then murdered in her apartment, after refusing to star in a sex film. The Beverly Hills police grab the closest suspect, Ben Crandel, and charge him with murder one. Freed on bail, Crandel has to track down the real killer, and finds himself being pushed around like a pawn in a multi-million dollar game of survivor-take-all.
