White Lies (Unabridged)
Asher Blaine was an actor with significant star power before destroying his career with drugs. After years of cycling through rehab and relapse, he finally had his epiphany and chose sobriety.
While carefully piecing together the ravaged scraps of his life in a quiet suburb of LA, he is arrested for murder. The victim, his ex-business manager, was shot with a re-fitted prop gun from one of his movies. A coincidence proves his innocence, but subsequent violence casts doubts. Asher realizes he must mend all his burnt bridges a lot sooner than he'd planned. A series of calamities raises the stakes, and he uncovers a stunning lie from his past. When he turns to the people he trusted most, he discovers he must convince them not only of his sobriety, but of his innocence.
