Overview

Good killers are hard to find. But the CIA has no trouble finding the legendary TV producer and game show king Chuck Barris. In Bad Grass Never Dies, Barris picks up the fast-paced intrigue in Hollywood, where his emotional life lies in ruins, his career careens out of control, and he can't get a break anyplace he turns. Then one day a high-ranking CIA boss appears unannounced on Barris' doorstep. The CIA needs the cooperation of a Mexican terrorist, and Barris is ordered to recruit the killer as a paid assassin. Complicating matters is the fact that this same assassin is responsible for the death of two of Barris' fellow operatives. What's to prevent him from facing the same fate on arrival in Mexico? Barris' beguiling humor and a crack-shot taxi driver hold the answer. The stakes continue to build in this eagerly awaited sequel from the author who dazzled and amused readers—and later movie audiences—with the publication of his first book of memoirs, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.

Not as much of the action as is in Confessions of A Dangerous Mind, but still a great read. If Chuck Barris keeps writing them I'll keep reading them.

BAD GRASS NEVER DIES is the best summer read I'v gotten my hands on in a long time. It was a real page turned about an exciting life. It doesn't matter if it's true or not, but this memoir reads like a wonderful spy novel. Barris has found his genre.
