Summary

Summary

Charlie and Margaret discover the dark side of Holllywood in this sequel to New York Times bestseller The Hellfire Club—a thrilling cocktail of corruption and ambition from CNN's Jake Tapper.

Charlie and Margaret Marder, political stars in 1960s Washington DC, know all too well how the tangled web of power in the nation's capital can operate. But while they long to settle into the comforts of home, Attorney General Robert Kennedy has other plans. He needs them to look into a potential threat not only to the presidency, but to the security of the United States itself.

Charlie and Margaret quickly find themselves on a flight to sunny Los Angeles, where they’ll face off against a dazzling world of stars and studios. At the center of their investigation is Frank Sinatra, a close friend of President John F. Kennedy and a rumored mob crony, whom Charlie and Margaret must befriend to get the inside scoop. But in a town built on illusions, where friends and foes all look alike, nothing is easy, and drinks by the pool at the Sands and late-night adventures with the Rat Pack soon lead to a body in the trunk of their car. Before they know it, Charlie and Margaret are being pursued by sinister forces from Hollywood’s stages to the newly founded Church of Scientology, facing off against the darkest and most secret side of Hollywood’s power.

As the Academy Awards loom, and someone near and dear to Margaret goes missing, Charlie and Margaret find the clock is not only ticking but running out. Someone out there knows what they’ve uncovered and can’t let them leave alive. Corruption and ambition form a deadly mix in this fast-paced sequel to The Hellfire Club.

Editorial Reviews

“One helluva a mystery—bursting with early-‘60s luminarios.” Gillian Flynn, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Explores the thin lines between politics, pop culture, and crime, and the story is always gripping.” Michael Connelly, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Jake Tapper’s deep inside knowledge of power, greed, and politics fuels this riveting page-turner. Warning: Don’t start this book late at night unless you have no plans the next day.” Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“One helluva a mystery—bursting with early ‘60s luminarios from Bobby Kennedy to Frank Sinatra and his swinging gang. Tapper effortlessly blends a journalist’s sharp eye with a storyteller’s keen sense of suspense: The result is as bracing as the bourbon the book’s Rat Packers knock back and as fizzy as the champagne the Hollywood stars swig. Raise a glass.” Gillian Flynn, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Frank Sinatra, Robert Kennedy and Charlie Marder — you can’t lose with this combination of characters in The Devil May Dance. Jake Tapper explores the thin lines between politics, pop culture, and crime, and the story is always gripping, accurate, and right on target when it comes to underlining that the past is prologue and politics are always played for keeps.” Michael Connelly, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“This is a remarkably accomplished effort, especially for a first novel…Tapper brings…the kind of detailed political knowledge that only someone with his first-hand experience could bring to the story.” Booklist
