When a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon is called in after a beautiful pop star is violently disfigured, he thinks his job is to restore her looks, but soon fears he's there to surgically erase all trace of the crime.
Plastic is a novel of psychological suspense about some desperate Hollywood image makers who conspire to do the ultimate cover-up. When Dr. Harry Previn fails to restore Fay Wray, the ravishingly beautiful nineteen-year-old pop star at the center of this predicament, a conspiracy ensues to fake her death offering to lock in her beauty and give her Marilyn Monroe-like immorality, and of course, if she's dead, she can't press criminal charges. For Previn, beauty has become a life or death proposition because his patients are literally dying to be beautiful. Plastic explores the ephemeral world of celebrity and beauty at the intersection of Hollywood and rock 'n roll.
