Stone Barrington discovers that all the botox in Bel-Air can’t keep its biggest power players from cracking under pressure in this New York Times bestseller.
Stone is no stranger to Bel-Air—and to the beautiful and wealthy widow who needs his help to become even wealthier. At stake is the sale of her investment in Hollywood's world-famous Centurion Studios. But when Stone arrives in Bel-Air to finalize the sale, he discovers that one of L.A.'s most rapacious power brokers has Centurion in his sights. Now, Stone must play a surprisingly complex and high-stakes game, the kind only the truly rich and dangerously ambitious can win—and survive.
