Richard W. Haines brings to his fiction the same wit, vision and imagination that he brought to his cult films, adored by  millions.



 
 
 

Can I, Max Royster, fired from the NYPD for mental disease, now on crutches, train a ragtag group of performers, my Show­bizzers, to use their skills and bodies to stop a genius crime lord in the High Desert town of Basta, California?

The Eve of Christmas Eve, Manhattan’s tony Upper East Side, Max Royster (now an ex-NYPD cop) wit- nesses a debutante’s kidnapping and be- comes the FBI’s prime suspect. Or is he actually their salvation?


 Movies can be a
 deadly business.
 Especially when you
 are screen­writer Nick
 Slade or girlfriend
 Clarice An­drews. And
 you don’t have the
 career-des­troying porn
 film that a politician
 (who starred in it as a
 college student) and
 his hired killers think
 you do.

To find one dumped corpse is a shock. To discover another a few days later, this time the dismembered body of a beautiful woman with whom you’d been briefly involved, makes you a suspect.
