“A Raymond Chandleresque vivisection of Tinseltown’s beautymakers.”
~ Noah Wyle
A NOVEL BY FRANK STRAUSSER
When a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon is called in after a beautiful pop star is brutally assaulted, he thinks his job is to restore her looks, but soon fears he’s there to surgically erase all trace of the crime.
Plastic is a novel of psychological suspense about some desperate Hollywood image makers who conspire to do the ultimate cover up. When Dr. Harry Previn fails to restore Fay Wray, the ravishingly beautiful nineteen year-old pop star at the center of this predicament, a conspiracy ensues to fake her death offering her Marilyn Monroe-like immorality, but of course if she's dead, she can't press criminal charges. For Previn, beauty has become a life or death proposition because his patients are literally dying to be beautiful. Plastic explores the ephemeral world of celebrity and beauty at the intersection of Hollywood and rock 'n roll.
