Uncomfortably perched on metal folding chairs, the six young women figeted nervously, their anxiety magnified by the mirrored walls of the barren rehearsal hall.

Book description
Hollywood can be a tough town, but it's been awfully good to Danny Dennison. At midlife, he's wealthy, successful, and , although his movies he directs are more hot commerce, than great art, he's respected throughout the film world. But Danny Dennison has been living a lie. His true identity is buried halfway around the world in the ruins of a Nazi concentration camp. Danny believes his secret to be safe - until he meets Luba, a young sensuous call girl, whose mesmerizing sexuality begins to shatter his well-guarded facade.
Thought-provoking and original, riveting and erotic, Dance With The Devil is a novel of passion and guilt by the acclaimed actor whose autobiography The Ragman's Son was an international best-seller. With this book, one of the most powerful fiction debuts in recent years, Kirk Douglas displays the insight, flair for drama, and skill at characterization that have made him a renowned actor - and now a novelist to be reckoned with.
At the heart of this fast-paced page-turner is the story of one man['s struggle for redemption - as the Jew he's pretended not to be, as an artist, as a father struggling to regain his child, and as a lover desperately trying to lose himself in teh arms of a woman who arouses him as no one has before. 
Few readers will be left unmoved by Denny Dennison's search for the soul he believes he lost so many years ago.
