9780345464101: Too Much Money: A Novel

The last two years have been monstrously unpleasant for high-society journalist Gus Bailey. When he falls for a fake story and implicates a powerful congressman in some rather nasty business on a radio program, Gus becomes embroiled in a slander suit. The stress makes it difficult for him to focus on his next novel, which is based on the suspicious death of billionaire Konstantin Zacharias. The convicted murderer is behind bars, but Gus is not convinced that justice was served. There are too many unanswered questions, and Konstantin’s hot-tempered widow will do anything to conceal the truth.

Featuring favorite characters and the affluent world Dunne first introduced in People Like Us, Too Much Money is a mischievous, compulsively readable tale by the most brilliant society chronicler of our time—the man who knew all the secrets and wasn’t afraid to share them.

About the Author:

Dominick Dunne was the author of five bestselling novels, two collections of essays, and The Way We Lived Then, a memoir with photographs.  He had been a special correspondent for Vanity Fair for twenty-five years, and the host of the television series Dominick Dunne's Power, Privilege, and Justice. He passed away in 2009 after completing Too Much Money.

From AudioFile:

Dominick Dunne, who died in 2009, offers another indictment of the excesses of self-indulgent, name-dropping socialites. New York society insiders will see through Dunne's thinly disguised characterizations in this sequel to PEOPLE LIKE US (1988). Dunne's fictional alter ego, society reporter Gus Bailey, tells his story. Bailey's battling a lawsuit, and he's been contracted to write a novel based on the suspicious death of Perla Zacharias's billionaire husband. Perla, a vicious, social-climbing villainess, doesn't want the book published. Ann Marie Lee's narration is serviceable, bringing upper-crust charm to her characterizations. However, Dunne's incisive wit and sarcasm get lost in her sweet voice. Not as much fun as earlier books, but worth a listen. S.J.H. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
