Marshall Stone is an international superstar and charismatic member of Hollywood's elite. Abundantly blessed with charm, genius and wealth, he desires still one more quality: everlasting youth. Marshall thinks he may get what he wants when an eminent author begins writing a biography on him, but the book threatens to expose his painful, untold true story.
Dazzled by flattery and numbed by threats, the biographer gets caught up in a world where books are properties, films are investments, ratings are rigged, and stars and directors are bought and sold like inanimate objects. The rituals, politics, and back-stabbing tactics of the richest industry in the world have never been more effectively portrayed than in this classic Deighton written with his signature thriller flair.
Bestselling British author Len Deighton is known for his complex, nuanced espionage thrillers, beginning with his very first novel, The Ipcress File. Along with his contemporary, John le Carré, who also started his career in the early 1960s, Len Deighton transformed the spy novel by writing about the ways in which espionage can not only change the course of history, but how it can affect the morality and personal lives of the individuals involved.
