It s a bloodthirsty town, Hollywood. No matter how popular you are, there's always someone who'd be happier if you were dead. Barry Gerber, one of the most hated men in Hollywood, is a no-show for a red carpet event. The next morning he turns up dead, killed in such a bizarre way that neither Detectives Mike Lomax nor Terry Biggs nor anyone in Forensics has ever seen anything like it before. Two days later, the prime suspect another despised show-business bad boy is found murdered in the same sadistic manner. The list of suspects then becomes as long as the credits in a summer blockbuster.
