Good story right up to the end, which I think others will like more than I did. It just makes me a little nuts to go through 350+ pages and have it all wrap up in 4.
This is a good thriller, especially if you are familiar with the L.A. area.
EXCELLENT, I really like this author.
Very good book by a good author.
Crime Thriller about a former NY mobster trying to pass himself off as a successful LA movie producer while his past seeks to catch up with him.
Prolific crime writer Woods is back in form with a propulsive thriller featuring a movie mogul embroiled in multiple murders. While his last effort, the disappointing Santa Fe Rules , had a similar plot trajectory, Woods succeeds here with the help of a dynamic protagonist whose ambitions fuel a wild ride and an explosive ending. Vincente Michaele Callabrese works as a shake-down artist for the mob in New York City's Little Italy, but moviegoing is his passion. Early in the story, he changes his name to Michael Vincent and makes a break for L.A., where with the help of powerful studio head Leo Goldman he fufills his dream of becoming a big-time producer. Vincent's cosa nostra connections keep in touch, particularly old pal Tommy Provenzano, whose rise to power in New York parallels Vincent's in Hollywood. Eventually, Vincent's desire to bring a gentle turn-of-the-century novel to the screen leads him to employ the sorts of techniques and friends that served him in his mafia days.
Mobsters, movies and mystery just what Stuart Woods does best. Surprising twists and turns.
Good story by Stuart Woods
A real page-turner with a great ending. More thought-provoking than most of Woods' other novels.
