"Waiting On" Wednesday: Too Much Money


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Too Much Money
By Dominick Dunne
Publication Date: December 1

From Amazon:

"The last two years have been monstrously unpleasant for high-society journalist Gus Bailey. His propensity for gossip has finally gotten him into trouble--$11 million dollars worth. His problems begin when he falls hook, line, and sinker for a fake story from an unreliable source and repeats it on a radio program. As a result of his flip comments, Gus becomes embroiled in a nasty slander suit brought by Kyle Cramden, the powerful congressman he accuses of murder, and he fears it could mean the end of him.

The stress of the lawsuit makes it difficult for Gus to focus on the novel he has been contracted to write, which is based on the suspicious death of billionaire Konstantin Zacharias. It is a story that has dominated the party conversations of Manhattan’s chattering classes for more than two years. The accused murderer is behind bars, but Gus is not convinced that justice was served. There are too many unanswered questions, such as why a paranoid man who did not go anywhere without bodyguards was suddenly left without protection the very night he perished in a tragic fire. Gus believes the answers lie with Konstantin’s hot-tempered and vengeful wife, Perla. He intends to uncover the truth, even though doing so will gain him another dangerous enemy."

I'm thrilled that Dominick Dunne has a book coming out. I was ssad when he dies. I think he was such an interesting man. He lived through a terrible tragedy and went on to make quite an interesting life for himself.

I've only now discovered your blog thanks to Lori's Reading Corner and I love this idea of "Waiting" on Wednesday.

Saw your twitter re: The Promised World (I don't twitter -so writing here). I finished it and found it a lot to take (especially because I have a twin brother). Really intense book. You are not missing anything by not finishing

This book sounds really juicy. I love books about writers and lawyers and this book seems to have elements of both the written world and law. Great Waiting on Wednesday pick!
