Mica Daly is a popular on-camera reporter on the daily entertainment news program Drop Zone and a fixture on the red carpet circuit. But he’s hungry for more—a hot story that he can really sink his teeth into. And there is Chad Martin, little more than a wannabe actor when he and Mica met at one of Roger Keenan’s infamous dinner parties. As their relationship grows, so does Chad’s career. In fact, Chad’s rise to stardom is meteoric. But Joey Chase has ambition too. A paparazzi with a nose for news, he captures a series of provocative pictures of Chad with a mystery man causing rumors to swirl that there is more to the Chad Martin story than meets the media’s scrutinizing eye. Lydia Gray, Mica’s unscrupulous boss, sees an opportunity and assigns Mica to find out just who the man is in Chad’s life. Caught in having to out his own boyfriend to save his career, Mica soon finds that even choosing the high road is bumpy and may just lead down a path Mica is not ready to travel—a road paved with deceit, heartbreak, jeopardy, even death.
