According to an Ancient Chinese Proverb

“She who rides the tiger better not dismount”

This is an ADULT book—no doubt about it. It is the story of a Hollywood Star and all that goes with it—Maddie finally does go too far and at the end loses that which she least expected to lose.

From the back of the book:

RIDE THE TIGER -- Fame, money and sex, that’s what Hollywood is all about. Madelaine Brent wanted them all and she always got everything she wanted. But sometimes everything is too much and somebody can get murdered. She remembered an ancient Chinese Proverb her agent told her as a warning, so long ago: “She who rides the tiger better not dismount.” Was she about to fall off?

The deeply penetrating story of a film star who puts her career and her erotic desires above all else, Madelaine Brent is willing to undergo the tortuous beauty treatments that will keep her on top – a survivor in the film world, the Las Vegas show time scene ad a survivor in the art of love. But Maddie does not foresee the consequences her actions will have on the men in her life: her British film director husband Charles who is devoted to her, the one-night stand she thought she could dismiss, the French film star who fathered her child, the young writer-director she seduced and the actor who holds her spellbound. Her beautiful daughter Cathy, alienated from her mother, has taken a dangerous path that leads to prison. Maddie’s path leads her to a place she didn’t expect – and a trail of murders.

About the author Pat Silver-Lasky

Pat’s relationship with Hollywood goes back a long way before she was born. In 1913, her future father-in-law, Jesse L. Lasky, produced the first full-length motion picture The Squaw Man. Her late husband, Jesse Lasky Jr. wrote over 50 films, 8 for C.B. DeMille, including The Ten Commandments, and Samson and Delilah.

This book can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other fine booksellers.
