9781932100266: The Devil of Shakespeare

Hollywood mega-star Darian Fable is making a daring escape from his celebrity shackles. Fueled by a fervent ambition to exorcise his torturous childhood, Fable, formerly known as David Faulkner, scaled the treacherous heights of the movie business to become Hollywood's golden boy. Collecting Oscars and commanding an A-list salary, Darian is surrounded by sniveling studio executives, seedy agents and intrusive reporters who ravenously leech his talent, fame and fortune. Haunted by his formative years on Chicago's south side under the oppressive rule of an abusive father and aunt, the entertainment emperor pines for a family life and friends he can trust. As Hollywood gasps, Darian relinquishes his throne and disappears with his entertainment mogul wife for a quiet existence in the Connecticut hills. A sensational news story unfolds as his decision to abandon stardom produces a turbulent chain of events, threatening the careers of the entertainment industry's most powerful people. Even in seclusion, Darian is under intense glare and in grave danger as the former star is hunted by vengeful studio executives, vulturous paparazzi and his shadowy past.

About the Author:

New author Billy McCarthy sets a genre precedent with this smart, dynamic thriller. His debut novel delivers a punch to the gut of the entertainment industry, spotlighting obscene appetites for fame, backstabbing charades, cut throat tactics and the bitter consequences of celebrity. The author, a former rock artist and music industry personality, leverages real life experiences and insider insight to orchestrate this addictive tale of believable fiction. Breaking new literary ground, the book is the first ever to include a CD single inspired by the story, co-written by McCarthy and Chip Z'Nuff from E'Nuff Z'Nuff. In addition to McCarthy and Z'Nuff, guest performances on The Devil of Shakespeare single include Warrant's Jani Lane, Styx' James "JY" Young and Ron Flynt of 20/20.
