Adam Verlain loves his careful, cloistered world of rare and antiquarian books. But when an American celebrity offers her very valuable 1865 copy of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" to his university, he has to be forced to travel from London to Los Angeles to close the deal. Then after a disastrous flight, he is taken aback when the actress refuses to give up the novel unless he escorts her to her latest film premier for reasons that seem...well, rather odd.
Subjected to a radical Hollywood makeover, Adam is mistaken for a British actor, dragged to a goofy party, has to dodge an overly affectionate guard panther, and is shocked to learn the actress does not have the book.
Can he escape the spotlight shenanigans to find a true treasure and keep it from falling into the wrong hands...and keep himself from falling for a woman who is way beyond his reach...in this zany quest to protect a priceless classic?

About the Author
He has written books that range from sunshine and light ("David Martin") to cold and dark ("How To Rape A Straight Guy", which has been banned a couple of times) to flat out crazy ("The Lyons' Den") to mainstream ("The Alice '65"). He has now ventured into SF-Horror-Suspense with "The Beast in the Nothing Room" and taken Capitalism to its logical extreme in "Hunter".
He is now working to complete "A Place of Safety", his Irish novel, using Tolstoy as his guide, and is trying to build characters as vivid and real as possible. He has a lot of fun doing it mixed with angst, anger, and amazement ... but that's the lot of a writer.
