160; "Don't be fooled into thinking AMERICAN HERO is merely a cunning satire. It could, in fact, be a brilliantly disguised documentary. Did George Bush really hire a movie director to stage the Gulf War? And, if so, how did Larry Beinhart get the incredible story? Okay, so he's no Woodward or Bernstein. But he's a damn sight funnier." --Carl Hiaasen
There once was a mean, dying GOP chairman who had the most brilliant, insane, frightening, and doable idea ever concocted to assure that his man would retain the office of the president of the United States. And the only man on the face of the earth who could pull off such an elaborate scheme was none other than the world's most celebrated Hollywood director.
Add to this a left-coast gumshoe named Broz who is trapped between serious cover-ups, steamy undercover work, and his own scruples, plus a cast of desperate characters torn from the real-life fabric of both coasts, and the stage is set for a powerful D.C./L.A. production. And, oh yes, hundreds of thousands of people will die....
"AMERICAN HERO is hilarious, thoughtful, insistently readable, and a little scary. All around, a thoroughly marvelous book." --Robert B. Parker
"Beinhart takes the triumph of the image maker to new heights.... He brings Hollywood and Washington together in a stew of conspiracy, sex and derring-do." --The Wall Street Journal
