Summary
When callous movie studio executive Griffin Mill starts receiving anonymous death threats from a rejected screenwriter, his already shaky career begins to crumble. Finally, his desperation drives him to kill--but did he rub out the wrong writer? Relentlessly hounded by a street-wise detective, Griffin falls recklessly in love with the dead man's girlfriend. Then the mysterious threats begin again
