Ride the Tiger

Murder in Hollywood Doesn't Only Happen in the Movies!

by Pat Silver-Lasky

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Fame, money and sex, that's what Hollywood is all about. Madelaine Brent wanted them all and she always got everything she wanted. But sometimes everything is too much and somebody can get murdered. She remembered an ancient Chinese proverb her agent told her as a warning, so long ago. 'She who rides the tiger better not dismount.' Was she about to fall off?
Description
The deeply penetrating story of a film star who puts her career and her erotic desires above all else. Madelaine Brent is willing to undergo the tortuous beauty treatments that will keep her on top - a survivor in the film world, the Las Vegas showtime scene and a survivor in the art of love. But Madelaine does not foresee the consequences her actions will have on the men in her life: her British film director husband Charles who is devoted to her, the one-night stand she thought she could dismiss, the French film star who fathered her child, the young writer-director she seduced and the actor who holds her spellbound. Her beautiful daughter Cathy, alienated from her mother, has taken a dangerous path that leads to prison. Maddie's path leads her to a place she didn't expect - and a trail of murders.
