New York Times bestselling author Stuart Woods revisits the characters and settings of his bestseller The Prince of Beverly Hills in this gripping novel of murder, political intrigue, and betrayal set in 1940s Hollywood, when the Red Scare meant anyone could be suspect.

Rick Barron, a former Beverly Hills police officer, has risen to head of production of Centurion Studios. Professionally powerful and happily married–to the beautiful actress Glenna Gleason–Rick’s at the top of his game. A sun-drenched world of style, glamour, and desire, the movie studios are a place where anyone with ambition can rise to fame and fortune–or scandal. But now tensions are running high in Hollywood, and the Red Scare is a sign of bad things to come. The witch hunt is spreading, and with it come deception, murder, and dirty dealings that even the picture-perfect veneer of Hollywood can’t hide.

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 his fans always expect.
