Courtier to Death

Paperback
Eight years ago Rene Tessier was at the height of his fame. Now the once-celebrated film star frequents less reputable Parisian cafes. That is until young producer Julian Lane plans to star Tessier in his latest production with the promise of millions. Tessier is headed to London. But the washed-up old man spends less than 24 hours in a dingy Soho hotel before he is found dead. Was it suicide or murder? And who could have wanted Tessier dead?
