Private Screening Publisher's Summary

"Thrilling.... PRIVATE SCREENING succeeds on all counts. It's a footrace of a read, daring you to put it down." (ATLANTA JOURNAL & CONSTITUTION)

The nation is stunned silent when presidential hopeful James Kilcannon is shot dead in front of his rock-star girlfriend Stacy Tarrant. Fiercely independent attorney Tony Lord dares to defend the shooter, but the already bizarre plot takes another twist. As America watches, a mysterious and ruthless figure, known only as Phoenix, takes to the airwaves - and takes the wife of a wealthy newspaper mogul and Stacy's manager as his hostages. Phoenix mounts a televised trial of his own - in which Stacy Tarrant and Tony Lord are helpless defendents, millions of viewers are jurors, and - unless his chilling demands are met - Pheonix is the unstoppable executioner....
