Walker, a gossip columnist with the National Enquirer, presents Hollywood at its most vicious in this novel of ambition, greed, and revenge.
Charmain Burns rises from Florida white trash to Hollywood stardom at an early age. Along the way, she leaves a trail of kinky sex and violence: castrations, murders, rapes. After Charmain sets in motion the accidental death of a reporter who has written an unflattering story about her, she is the object of constant surveillance by the reporter’s editor and a maniac stalker. These actions come at the worst possible time, for Charmain is seeking the lead in Medusa, a film about an ambitious actress willing to kill for a prized move role.
