Released from prison after serving seven years for killing a seemingly innocent teenage girl, director Garrett Walsh hires reporter Jimmy Gage to help him get his screenplay--about the set-up that sent him to prison--read, but the situation becomes complicated by Garrett's supposedly "accidental" death. 30,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
Jimmy Gage is a reporter for Slap magazine in Los Angeles - "a troublemaker by trade and inclination, with fast hands and too much curiosity for his own good. Fight or flight, it made no difference anymore."
This time around, it's definitely fight.
While on an L.A. party-scene scavenger hunt, Jimmy meets Garrett Walsh, a former boy-wonder director who has just been released from prison after serving seven years for the drug-rage murder of a seemingly innocent teenage girl. Out of prison and out for justice, Walsh chooses Jimmy to help him clear his name by getting the right people to read his newest script, Fall Guy, the story of the setup that sent him away. Walsh dubs it "The Most Dangerous Screenplay in Hollywood," and apparently he's right: two weeks after they first meet, Jimmy finds him dead. But there is something that rings true in Walsh's story and something that rings false in the police report of accidental death, so Jimmy sets out after the truth. But is this his scavenger hunt, or is he at the top of someone else's "find-at-all-costs" lists?
