Now the big time calls, and Jim accepts an offer to become head of A&R at industry giant WorldWide Records, founded and still run by the legendary maverick Wild Bill DeGaul. Little by little, though, it dawns on Jim that he has walked into a vipers nest, and he must choose between picking up a dagger in a bloody palace coup against DeGaul or standing by him and losing everything.Never before in fiction has the music business been so thoroughly nailed, but A&R is as much Julius Caesar as it is The Player: for all its great wit and dead-on insider texture, its as wise about human nature as it is about one very dysfunctional industry.
