From the Academy Award-Nominated Screenwriter of "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and "The Manchurian Candidate" comes a breathtaking story of murder and mischief...It's the story of a big-game hunter, fisherman, fighter, visitor to Cuba, drunk, and Nobel Prize-winning author, recently deceased of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, whose final unpublished manuscript could fetch a mint...It's the story of a short, balding man with a high-pitched voice and a vicious wit, whose cocktail parties are the talk of the town, especially when a beautiful woman dies at one of them...It's the story of Hollywood's sexiest starlet, who manages to conceal things even when she's wearing nothing but a towel...and it's the story of Dick Sherman, intrepid New York publisher, on the trail of the literary find of the century - and the killer who will stop at nothing to keep it from being found.
