A Hollywood Curse? Los Angeles newspaper columnist Neil Gulliver and his ex-wife Stevie Marriner, the "sex queen of the soaps," uncover a pattern in the supposed accidental deaths of movie icon James Dean's Rebel Without a Cause co-stars Natalie Wood, Sal Mineo and Nick Adams. Were they and others associated with Dean, in fact, murdered? Was Dean's tragic death in a fiery highway crash forty-five years ago also no accident, or is it possible that--as millions of his fans continue to believe--James Dean survived the crash and is still alive today? Neil and Stevie escape threats on their own lives while tracking those answers and a solution to a series of new murders on a trail that takes them over the same death route the star drove in his Porsche and, finally, to his boyhood home in Fairmount, Indiana, where nothing is as it seems about James Dean, not the truth and, for certain, not the lies. But--which is which?
