Rick Barron, a sharp, capable detective on the Beverly Hills force, finds himself demoted after a run-in with a superior officer, but he soon lands a job other cops only dream about: the security detail for Centurion Pictures, one of the hottest studios in the midst of Hollywood's golden age of the late 1930s. As the protector of the studio's interests, Barron looks after the elite of filmdom's stars - among them Clete Barrow, a British leading man with a penchant for parties, and Glenna Gleason, a peach of a talent on the verge of stardom." Rick's easy charm has society columnists dubbing him "the Prince of Beverly Hills," the white knight of movie stars, until he stumbles across a murder cover-up and a blackmail scam that threaten the studio's business and may have origins with some unsavory characters. When two suspicious deaths begin to look like a double murder, and an attempt is made on someone who has become an intimate friend, Barron knows he is up against wise guys whose stakes are nothing less than do-or-die. A dicey war of nerves is on.

One of my favorite Stuart Woods books
I have read every book Woods has done and this is one of my favorites. I love the sexy Hollywood era that we are drop into. If you like a quite fun ride with some Hollywood stars give this book a read....
Prince of Beverly hills
My favorite. Great book
Cheers for Mr Woods
As always, you start reading, and the next thing you know, you have finished the story in one sitting.
This is a great story, with enough facts to be true, and enough fiction to make the story great.
I always enjoy Stuart's writing since it makes you love the hero, be dazzled by his skill and make him very believable.
Thanks for another great read.
