Joan Collins is a superstar - and the author of a best-selling autobiography, Past Imperfect.

Her nove, Prime Time, is the story of a talented, beautiful and romantic woman whose marriage is breaking up as her career takes her to the heights of stardom...

As Prime Time begins, five actresses are vying for the coveted part of Miranda Hamilton - the scheming, sexy, glamorous temptress in "Saga," the hottest series ever to hit the TV screen, the role of a lifetime, a role to kill for...

The first is Emerald Barrymore, legendary superstar, world-famous beauty, Hollywood's darling since childhood, desperate now to revive her flagging career, searching for something to halt her slide into drugs and alcohol...

Second is Rosalinde Lamaze, sultry Latin star of countless B movies, who wants to shake off her image as a sex goddess and be taken seriously as an actress...

Third is Sissy Sharp, Academy Award-winner, at the top of Hollywood's "A list," whose storybook marriage to the distinguished actor Sam Sharp, slated to play the male lead in "Saga," is widely suspected to be a sham. Sissy will stop at nothing to win the part of Miranda...

Fourth is Sabrina Jones, young, blond, gorgeous, who has everything she wants - including the man every woman desires - except this part...

Last - but not least - is Chloe Carriere, an outsider, a cabaret singer from England, married to a fading singer...

Nobody rates Chloe's chances of being chosen for Miranda highly - least of all herself. She is facing the toughest competition Hollywood can offer, at a time when her marriage to the only man she has ever loved is on the rocks.

But Chloe is a fighter, a woman of ture spirit, determined to do everything she can to save her marriage - and become Miranda.

The lives and loves of these five women - firends and foes - are played out against the glittering world of money, sex power and glamour that is television - and Hollywood - today.

Its fatal allure drives them. It has the power to give them success beyond their wildest dreams, but it also has the power to destroy them...

Only one will become a superstar, attracting the envy and adoration of every woman - and many men - her past illuminated by the merciless glare of fame, her happiness at risk, her very life at stake - as one man, with madness and violence in his heart, watches from the shadows, determined that the woman who inhabits his tormented fantasies will become Miranda...

Joan Collins has written the ultimate Hollywood novel.

"Racy and chic, fraught with big money, well-worn casting couches, suicidal has-beens, drug-addicted superstars and grasping starlets...Endlessly enteraining"
