The Return of the Player

Author(s): Michael Tolkin

General Fiction

'Griffin Mill was broke, he was down to his last six million dollars.' After getting away with murder, Griffin has risen up the ranks of the studio - but not to the top. Now he wants out of a Hollywood that has changed beyond recognition. With business having peaked and box office takings down, Griffin is convinced that Hollywood is crumbling because his world is in turmoil. In the midst of an unsustainably expensive lifestyle and a broken marriage, Griffin makes one last desperate plan: to quit the studio and convince Phil Ginsberg, an almost billionaire, to become his partner. But as his plan threatens to collapse, Griffin realises that he may have to kill once more in order to save himself. First published 2006.
