[an Oz Blackstone Mystery]Book - 2002
When Oz Blackstone is offered a major role in a cop movie shooting in Edinburgh, he cannot resist taking centre stage. The self-professed `luckiest man on the planet` is on a roll with stardom beckoning and some serious wealth to his name, but his marriage to Primavera is on the rocks. A brief encounter with beautiful and self-possessed businesswoman Susie Gantry is turning into something much more long term - she is pregnant with his child. So will Oz finally silence the call of the wild and settle down to a cosy family life?
It all looks like a bowl of cherries until ex-lover Alison Goodchild turns up asking for a favour. It's the least Oz can do for an old flame, but when he finds Alison`s business partner murdered in her flat, he can`t help but suspect he`s been set up. And when he discovers a trail of intrigue leading to the cast of the very movie in which he is performing, those cherries begin to taste very rancid indeed...
