"It was just after midnight when the girl in the blue diamond necklace fell out of the sky."

In Hollywood, an ex-con movie producer, fresh out of San Quentin, is lucky if he can get a valet to take his car at The Ivy. Teddy Chessman got his own studio.

This entire review is pretty much a ***SPOILER***!

To start out, there is some strong language and there are some pretty explicit sex scenes, but these are not a focal point of the story.

I got this book Free for Kindle app, because this is how indie authors make their money, by giving stuff away. This is book #3 of the Rail Black series, so Russell did make beer money, because I wanted to read the first two books before this one. Beverly Hills Burning can be read first, but the 1st two books give

Intense. Seductive. Glamorous. Could not put down.

Neil Russell does an amazing job of combining the past with the present in this novel. What an amazing writer! I cannot wait to read the other books that he has written.

He made the transitions seamless - I was on the edge of my seat wanting to know what happened in both time periods. The sex scenes were obviously not done for shock value or just to have them in there - they actually propelled the story along and were always put in the right spo

A full review will follow later, but here are the high points...

Neil Russell has managed to construct an ongoing series where each individual novel a) stands alone, b) involves events of historical interest or social commentary, and c) manages not to pull any punches. Though City of War is my favorite purely because it was our introduction to the indomitable Rail Black, Beverly Hills is Burning takes a very very close second.

If you're a fan of sexy thrillers and love Hollywood history or mobste

I received this book, Beverly Hills Is Burning, by Neil Russell, free in the mail from Goodreads First Reads. This book is action packed & the characters are very well thought out. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery!

Neil Russell has hit an out-of-the-ballpark home run with his third installment in the Rail Black saga. Once Russell’s action prose grabs the reader, it’s very hard to stop even to sleep or eat. In this latest effort, Russell hooks you from the very beginning. Literally on Page 1, “It was just after midnight when the girl in the blue diamond necklace fell out of the sky.” The hero is Rail Black, a physically large ex-Delta forces vet, British expat, and Hollywood billionaire. He reminds me of Pa ...more

Why is this so highly rated? Two stories going on here, one in the 30s and the other in the present. Why would an 80+ year old story have any relevance to the other? I read 100 pages into this, skipping the 1930s crap, and the present "story" had yet to begin.

Interesting premise. I could have lived with a lot less description of woman/woman sex.
