Anything worth doing is worth doing in public...
David Lazar was the meanest piranha in Fleet Street. Wherever the rich and famous gathered there Lazar was, turning gossip into a blood sport.
Limelight Blues is Lazar's story. He grew up in the swinging sixties when vengeance was mod for a gritty kid from the wrong side of the tracks, and now he's made it t the top flight of the high-price hacks.
But Lazar had a weakness and her name was Baby Lincoln. He was soft enough to fall for her and hard enough to go looking for revenge hen she left him ... even if it was for the richest man in the world.
Limelight Blues is a blood-stained love story, the work of a brilliant young story-teller writing at his compulsive best.
