Red Carpet Black
Publisher: Sterling & Stone
An almost-been in his twenties, former actor Orson Beck can barely afford rent and child support on the pittance he earns at the grocery store job that was supposed to be temporary. His ex-wife left him for a more successful actor, and he’s too broke to be the kind of father he wants to be.
Orson is about to give up his dreams of stardom and focus on being a single dad when he receives a mysterious invitation in the mail: he’s been nominated for the Onyx List, an honor that could revive his career … or kill it forever.
When Orson makes the cut, his sudden success forces him to question every story he’s ever told himself about who he is. He isn’t sure what he really wants anymore -- but the ultrapowerful agents who’ve taken him on are already working behind the scenes to make sure he gets it, no matter what the cost.
By the time Orson realizes that his agents see his friends and family as obstacles to his success and have been working behind the scenes to isolate him, it’s too late to object to being a pawn in their Hollywood games.
As his newfound fame and fortune grows, will Orson destroy everyone he’s ever loved to keep it?
