Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Stuart Woods returns with the sequel to The Prince of Beverly Hills - a page-turning novel of murder, political intrigue, and betrayal set in 1940s Hollywood, the era of the "Red Scare," when almost anyone could be a suspect. Rick Barron, a former Beverly Hills cop, has risen to head of production of Centurion Pictures, and he's at the top of his game. But tensions are high in Hollywood, and when Rick's friend Sidney Brooks, a successful screenwriter, receives a subpoena from the House Un-American Activities Committee, Rick isn't surprised. The witch hunt is spreading, and those under investigation are Rick's closest friends - even his wife, the glamorous starlet Glenna Gleason. Set in a time of suspicion and uncertainty, Beverly Hills Dead is Stuart Woods's best novel yet-a fast-paced and sexy thriller full of the nail-biting twists and startling turns that Woods fans always expect.

One of Stuart Woods' Best!

Great sequel to "Prince of Beverly Hills." Characters are interesting, as is the story and plot lines. Entertaining and gripping.

A bit short on plot

I'll buy any "mystery" set in L.A., but there wasn't a lot of mystery or plot in this book. The main characters are such good guys, that they're unbelievable. They continually rewrite contracts with their stars and screen writers giving them more money "because they're doing such a good job." There's chapter on chapter of dialog and setup that doesn't develop into or support any plot, in fact three quarters of the way through the book I was wondering what the mystery was. All that said, I'd probably buy it again. For all its faults, it was entertaining in a very light fashion.
