9781621830306: The Deadly Prize

Paul and Laura Wellington are a popular, well-respected, and very well-to-do couple living a life of wealth and privilege in Malibu... ...which makes them the perfect target for an unthinkable crime. John Wellington is Paul's unlikeable, weak, apathetic younger brother; and he works at the family's long-established architectural firm. His smoldering resentment for his older brother results in a series of missteps that drive him to despair-and desperate men do desperate things. When unlikely circumstances bring John and three random individuals together-each from widely divergent backgrounds-the combination is not only sinister, it's deadly. A sixteen-year-old girl whose family and village have been obliterated by an unlikely sequence of natural disasters is devastated by her losses. Her cousin has escaped to Los Angeles to work for a white man in America, and she leaves the catastrophe behind to seek him out in "the city with the angels." But crossing the border illegally turns out to be a nightmare beyond anything she could have imagined. A newly-paroled prisoner vows to live within the law. Despite his lack of education, he hones his innate organizational skills, finds employment, and starts on the road to the good life he dreamed of in prison. But temptation abounds, luring him back to a life of crime which will potentially allow him to live in luxury much more quickly. A neglected teen leaves home at sixteen to seek fame and fortune in Hollywood with her beauty and talents. She is rescued from the streets by an aspiring agent who marries her and attempts to manage her career. His delusions of grandeur and multiple addictions, however, lead him and his wife down a path they never imagined they'd travel. With money, power, and greed as their motivation, this whirlwind adventure weaves a complicated web of wrongdoing, narcissism, and retribution when the evil quartet executes their plan and carries out the inconceivable.
