Riassunto: US Treasury Agents Charlie Carr and Jack Kelly, investigating a counterfeiting ring, are tipped off by Detective Travis Bailey of the L.A. police - a cool, ruthless cop with some strange tastes in sex and women - who warns them of a plot to murder their prime witness. Unwittingly, they are involved in a phony stake-out in which Kelly is seriously wounded.
Deeply suspicious and determined to avenge his partner, Carr puts his life and career on the line in order to build a case against Bailey, and sets out to prove that he is the mastermind behind a series of robberies from the area's wealthy residents. Carr's mission draws him into the depths of moneyed Beverly Hills, as well as into the underworld of have-nots, hungry for a piece of the Rolls-Royce action.
TO DIE IN BEVERLY HILLS is a masterly, original and harrowing thriller. Gerald Petievich once again successfully demonstrates both his talent for convincing characterization and his inside knowledge of the U.S. Secret Service.
L'autore: Gerald Petievich has made a career in criminal investigation. He served first as a Special Agent in the U.S. Army Intelligence Corps, and, as a Special Agent of the U.S. Secret Service of the Treasury Department, he spent some time in the Paris office where he worked with Interpol, chasing counterfeiters of U.S. currency all over Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
He comes from a family of cops - his father and brother are both officers in the Los Angeles Police Department, and he has been working as Secret Service Representative to the Los Angeles Federal Strike Force Against Organised Crime and Racketeering.
Gerald Petievich is as intensely committed to his job - and as free from illusions about it - as is his protagonist, Charles Carr.
The authors' experiences intensify the reality of his numerous, and critically aclaimed works. His best selling novel, "To Live and Die in L.A.," was made into a major motion picture. Some of his other titles are "To Die in Beverly Hills," "Paramour," "Earth Angels," "Money Men," "Shakedown," and "The Quality of the Informant."
