In the exhilarating new adventure from #1 New York Times-bestselling author Stuart Woods, Teddy Fay races to stop a scheme of extortion and a hostile takeover.
Ever a man of mystery and intrigue, Teddy Fay has donned a new disguise–that of Mark Weldon, a stuntman and actor starring in Centurion Studios’ newest film. When the picture’s leading lady begins receiving blackmail threats, Teddy is in the perfect position to investigate, and it soon becomes clear that the villains have more in their sights than just money. Money they’ve got. What they need is prestige, the cache of a respected studio to lend authority and legitimacy to their artistic endeavours. . . and a little bit of vengeance in the bargain.
From the seedy hidden corners of Los Angeles to the glamorous Hollywood Hills, it will take every ounce of Teddy’s cunning to save an actress’s career, protect the studio, and finish filming Centurion’s next big hit.
Teddy Fay is James Bond but on a domestic, national stage rather than the International one spanning the globe. He has similar skills, similar physical resilience and similar incredible skills and knowledge.
Fay is Woods’ foil for writing about his personal hobbies and interests, planes, fine dining, and criminal endeavours.
Woods is a master of dialogue moving his stories along at a snappy pace, fast, brisk and zippy. Like eating a bowl of salted nuts, gone before you know it. Same with Woods and about as nutritious. You eat it, enjoy it and are finished before you know it. But there’s no caloric guilt to Woods.
