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 suspect...

Rick Barron, a former Beverly Hills cop, has risen to the 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.

Beverly Hills Dead ---- by Stuart Woods c – 2008 ---- This story is a thrill to read and is the sequel to The Prince of Beverly Hills. ---- Alot of Mr. Woods work is linked by these two stories. Now this one as well has Murder and Intrigue, laced all thru it. The story line is around the 1940's and explains alot of how and why the stories are like they are in the later writings. ---- Let’s not forget the betrayal of the period. ---- Enjoy the read! ---- RichardPaul
