Overview

Such a Pretty, Pretty Girl: A Novel by Winston Groom

Delia Jamison is a gorgeous woman of a certain age at the pinnacle of her career as anchor of a network news show in Los Angeles. But she is being blackmailed by someone she is certain is one of her former lovers. Terrified to go to the police for fear the story will leak, Delia is at her wit's end when she runs into one of those former lovers, Johnny Lightfoot, whom she hasn't seen in nearly twenty years.

Johnny, now award - winning screenwriter living in New York and L.A., agrees to help her find the culprit, which means she must produce a list of suspects. And what a list it is: New York Stock Exchange moguls, fancy lawyer, and Ivy League professor - even a U.S. senator. As Johnny's investigation delves deeper into Delia's past, it exposes more than he ever wanted to know, while, at the same time, the blackmailer ratchets up his dangerous game. As the story moves to its frightening climax, Johnny wonders if he ever really knew Delia at all - or even if he ever wanted to.
