Hollywood Liesis a collection of seven suavely bewitching stories, all with a Machiavellian twist at the end: Marilyn Munroe as virtual reality's most valuable asset . . . A fading film producer whose impending death becomes the ultimate career break . . . A screenwriter terrorized by the character he creates - a force that refuses to die, either on screen or off . . . An outsider's vengeance on one of Tinseltown's royal families, which is also the greatest performance of her life . . . Against a backdrop already larger than life, each scenario mixes the mysterious with the supernatural in a toxic cocktail of malevolent wit - Hollywood's glitter balancing on a scalpel edge of madness.
