Summary
Griffin, a slick, successful film studio vice president listens to story pitches from a constant stream of writers. Like all Hollywood producers, he's always looking over his shoulder, and he thinks up-and-comer Larry Levy is after his job. Along with power lunches, corporate in-fighting, and bottom-line priorities, a mysterious someone--probably an ignored and angry screenwriter--has been leaving him threatening postcards. When he finally takes action, his cool aplomb deserts him, things go seriously sideways, and Griffin's world begins falling apart
