Inhaltsangabe: From Nora Roberts, phenomenal author of Sanctuary, Sweet Revenge, and many other bestsellers, comes her classic novel of Hollywood's brightest stars and darkest schemes, available in hardcover for the first time.
She is the last of the movie goddesses, and the greatest: a smoky-voiced sex symbol who clawed her way up the ladder to two Oscars and a Tony, four husbands and a legion of lovers. Her beauty is staggering, her power awesome. There is no secret, no lie, no scandal she doesn't know. Now, still in the spotlight after fifty years, Eve Benedict has decided to write her memoirs--no holds barred. All Hollywood begs her not to. But Eve has her reasons....
And she has handpicked her biographer. She has transported twenty-eight-year-old Julia Summers, already renowned for her skill and integrity as a writer, from a quiet Connecticut existence to glitzy Beverly Hills. Lovely, self-sufficient, and proudly professional, Julia hates the limelight but loves her work--and the home it built for the ten-year-old son she's raising alone. How can she refuse this chance of a lifetime? How can she know how dramatically her hard-won peace will be shattered?
Among the beautiful people in Eve's entourage is her beloved stepson, crime novelist Paul Winthrop, the child she herself could never have. Behind his elegance and sexy good looks simmers a resolve to kill Eve's tell-all story--and a desire for Julia that spells danger for her carefully guarded heart.
But danger of a far deadlier kind is already stalking Julia and her book. First comes a series of anonymous menacing notes. Then her house is ransacked, her interview tapes rifled. For as an unlikely bond forms between Julia and Eve and the legendary star gradually reveals layers of her fantastic life and its vivid cast--the glamorous, the famous, the passionate, and the perverse--she is keeping one secret for last. It is one that will change Julia's life--and could cut it brutally short....
In Genuine Lies, Nora Roberts has created a transfixing tale of sensuality and suspense, of buried desire and awakening terror.
Rezension: With her storytelling abilities in full force, Nora Roberts goes Hollywood in this contemporary romantic suspense. Ever since Julia Summers became a single mother at 18, she's focused all her energies on creating a secure home for her 10-year-old son, Brandon, and establishing herself as a sought-after biographer of Hollywood stars. Now quintessential movie goddess Eve Benedict, whose 50-year career has included two Oscars, four husbands, and scores of lovers, has particularly sought out Julia to write Eve's ultimate tell-all book. But as Eve reveals to Julia her many long-held secrets, Julia realizes there's a whole cast of characters with good reasons to keep Eve silent, including Eve's well-loved stepson, Paul Winthrop, a handsome novelist whose desire for Julia is beginning to penetrate her wary reserve. Eve, still glamorous, desirable, and reckless, thinks she's set the stage for events she can direct, but more and more, it's clear that someone dangerous is out of control. Fast paced, with a good balance between suspense and romance, and with more heart than many Hollywood-set novels. --Ellen Edwards
