When attorney-turned-novelist Abby Chandlis searches for a charismatic man to pose as Gable Cooper, the phantom author of the blockbuster thriller she has written, she encounters Jack Jermaine, a dangerous man obsessed with writing a best-selling novel *Author: Martini, Steve *Publication Date: 1997/12/01 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 1.00 *Width: 4.00 *Height: 6.50
From the Publisher:
A bold and successful scheme to outwit the biggest players in publishing and film animates this novel by the bestselling author of The Judge--a suspenseful thriller in which the price of fame becomes terror. Gable Cooper has penned a novel to kill for. Six million dollars in book and film rights are looming just off the table for this unknown author. But there is a problem: Gable Cooper doesnt exist. Abby Chandlis is an attorney turned novelist and the creator of Gable Cooper. In an age when glamour, not grammar, is often the secret to selling books, Abby has an intriguing plan to keep her writing career alive: find a charismatic male face to pose as the phantom author for the knock-dead thriller she has written. Jack Jermaine is a man with dangerous good looks and a shadowy past. Trained by the military to kill, his obsession is to pen a blockbuster book. He has a trunk filled with rejected manuscripts and a gnawing problem that has turned him bitter: Jack cant write. Desperate to find a man to play the role of Gable Cooper, Abby is about to give up when Jack forces his way into her life. Reluctantly she is convinced that Jack's humor and looks will clinch success for her novel. She uses her legal wits and makes a deal with the devil. Jack becomes Gable Cooper. When Jack is propelled into the orbit of celebrity, Abby finds herself at once seduced and trapped by her own creation. Success turns to terror. The story careens from the Pacific Northwest to New York City and finally through the islands of the Caribbean as Abby races for her life to the one person she can trust--the one person who can prove to the world that she wrote the novel, and put an end to the nightmare that was once her dream, the dream of making The List.Now, "New York Times" bestselling author Steve Martini turns his talents on the seductive world of entertainment, where a lawyer-turned-novelist has concocted the ultimate scheme to outwit the biggest players in New York and Hollywood. Nothing will stop her rise to the top. And nothing will prepare her for its terrifying--and deadly--price.
Annotation:
Abby Chandlis is a low-level lawyer and unknown novelist bent on making her new novel a bestseller. She and her roommate, Theresa, decide to get a male stand-in to act as the real Gable Cooper, her pseudonym on the new novel. Abby's novel and the stand-in, Jack Jermaine, get lots of attention, but when Theresa dies in an accident apparently meant for Abby, the novelist gets understandably unsettled. Where can she turn for help now that she's embroiled in this hoax? Who would be trying to get Abby out of the picture?
