From The Inside Out...

As one of the "characters" in this book, I want to applaud Rod Lurie for his integrity and seeking, finding and writing the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about a real life mystery and true tragedy. Jon Emr could have been one of the biggest wheeler dealers in Hollywood history, but the paradigm that was instilled in him with his mother's milk was deceit, larceny and the pure joy of putting something over on someone, led him to what hindsight now tells me was his only possible end. Hurrah for Rod Lurie and the publishers for having the courage to tell this story when just about everyone else wanted to sweep it under the rug. I understand the film rights have been sold, but don't hold your breath waiting for the movie! No one in Tinsel Town wants this true story to become common knowledge.

Factual, accurate and fair!

As one of the "subjects" of this book, I want to compliment Rod Lurie on a fantastic job of investigative reporting. I also want to thank him for honoring our agreement to not misquote me and to not quote me out of context. His reportage of my involvement in the life of Jon Emr was fairly and accurately portrayed from our interviews. This story should be made into a major motion picture. I suspect however that the Douglas family has already taken steps to secure the story rights, or other control, to see to it that this story isn't told to a wide audience to spare them embarrassment. I believe, for the most part, the Douglas family was as much a victim as the rest of us.
