Is sleeping with Marilyn Monroe worth getting murdered again?When Jack Cade, a down-and-out aging Hollywood actor, is fired from a no-pay production of Hamlet, he has no inkling his next role will be opposite Marilyn Monroe – only forty years back in time, in the year 1956.An award winning time-travel noir that slips between the shimmering worlds of modern and mid century Los Angeles show business.After Jack’s wife leaves him, he receives an invitation from a mysterious woman to her old mansion deep in the San Fernando Valley. Jack steps through her door and into a world of beguiling physics, magic and travel in time. Through a dark whirlwind of events, he meets Marilyn, gets killed (more than once) and emerges with the alexandrite ring – a jewel that will change his luck and destiny.How many lives will he have to blow before getting it right?After NORTH OF HOLLYWOOD, Lenz’s award-winning memoir about show business and addiction, comes another enchanting novel written with a sure hand and a knowing eye. Kirkus Reviews called this genre-bender a “mesmerizing story.” Indead, The Alexandrite is a bold, kaleidoscopic novel that glimpses at Hollywood’s past and present through the lenses of time travel, hypnotism, gemology and Marilyn Monroe’s haunting blockbuster “Bus Stop”.Winner of Grand Prize (Chanticleer Awards), and Best Books of the Year List Finalist (Kirkus Reviews), Book of the Year Finalist (Foreword Reviews), Reader Views Award in Fantasy – and more!Scroll up to grab your copy of The Alexandrite now!
