Dead on the Suspense--- AUDIO UNABRIDGED
THIS BOOK IS NARRATED BY TONY ROBERTS.<br><br>For fans of Stuart Woods, this is not an action book. The story goes into details about Hollywood after WWII. You'll be told about the Communist witch hunts that blacklisted many of the people in the film industry. It isn't until late in the book that someone is killed. Did Mr. Woods mean this to be a social commentary? I was hoping for a new suspense mystery from the man who brought us "White Cargo," "Santa Fe Rules," and "Palindrome," but apparently it isn't this book. If you are interested in the history of Hollywood after WWII then buy this book, otherwise there isn't too much suspense going for it.

Stuart Woods is a fantastic author and I have enjoyed every single one of his books. I especially like the ones on CD as I can listen to them on the way to work and back home or anywhere else. Great purchase. Just finished book and wow kept me in suspense, didn't have a clue...the end was fantastic. Would recommend this to others.

Beverly Hills Dead by Stuart Woods
I got into the Stuart Woods only a couple of months ago and have been looking for his other books. I like that his characters are interacting with each other in most of his books. It helps to get to know them better than just having them in one book.
