Rick Barron, a sharp, capable detective on the Beverly Hills force, finds himself demoted after a run-in with a superior officer, but 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 1930’s. As the protector of the studio’s interests, Barron looks after the cream of the crop of filmdom’s stars–Clete Barrow, the British leading man with a penchant for parties; and Glenna Gleason, a peach of a talent on the verge of superstardom. Rick’s easy charm has society columnists dubbing him “the Prince of Beverly Hills,” the white knight of movie stars, until he uncovers a murder cover-up and a blackmail scam that threatens 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.
