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.

Okay as a mindless read. Characters have no depth.

Some of the worst writing I have ever encountered.
Nearly all of the "action" takes place via cell-phone; in fact, no less than three times we find these exact words: "His cell buzzed again. Hello?"

A good read ----
This story opens at Elaine’s, where Stone and Dino are having Dinner. Arrington the mother of Stones son calls Stone on his cell phone. ---- Arrington needs Stone to manage a business deal in sunny Calif. Stone agrees and takes Dino his old detective friend along to rescue the movie studio. ----
Off to sunny California go Stone and Dino. And old characters Drift in and out of this story. Everything is done real quick and just plain: Pat. ----
