Casanegra : a Tennyson Hardwick story by Blair Underwood( Book )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 1,115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Follows the adventures of Tennyson Hardwick, a handsome, sexy actor and former gigolo, living on the fringes of the good life in Hollywood. This story chronicles the redemption of a prodigal son, combining the glamour of Hollywood with the seedy hopelessness of the inner city. Tennyson struggles to hang on to his acting career and redeem his sex-for-pay history, which estranged him from his family--especially his father, a decorated LAPD captain who raised Tennyson to call him "sir." Now, in the wake of his father's sudden stroke, Tennyson has to save himself from taking the fall for the first murder of a female rapper. In the process he discovers his hidden talents--the hard way.--From publisher description
