Summary
This time, celebrity ghostwriter Stewart "Hoagy" Hoag is caught in the middle of the biggest, ugliest divorce war in Hollywood history. The tabloids are calling it the House of Wax. The public can't get enough of it. In one corner is Matthew Wax, reclusive millionaire director of five out of the top ten blockbusters in movie history. In the other is his breathtaking leading lady, Pennyroyal Brim--America's sweetheart. Pretty Penny wants their son, George ("Little Georgie"). She also wants Bedford Falls, her husband's failing movie studio; then again, so does one of the Japanese electronics giants. Penny has Abel Zorch, Hollywood's greatest attorney, on her team. And she has hired Cassandra Dee, publishing's sleaziest ghost, to help her with her tell-all memoir about life with Matthew. Matthew has no choice but to fire back with a memoir of his own. Hoagy is the weapon of choice. The assignment takes our reluctant hero and his faithful, neurotic basset hound, Lulu, back out to Tinseltown, where the Santa Ana winds are blowing and some of the deadliest sharks in Hollywood are circling, all of them lusting for blood and money. It isn't long before Hoagy finds one of those sharks shot to death--and himself trying desperately to uncover the awful truth in a place where there is no such thing as the truth, where everything is possible and where nothing, but nothing, is real. The Boy Who Never Grew Up is a delightfully, deliciously nasty inside look at the madness that is modern-day Hollywood from one of the mystery world's brightest young stars
