Dr. Harry Previn, the renowned Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, is secretly called in to operate on the disfigured face of the ravishingly beautiful teen pop star Fay Wray following an assault. Surrounded by image makers who value beauty over all else, he soon fears Fay is in mortal danger. Will he risk everything to save her beauty, her life, or himself?

Plastic is a novel of psychological suspense about a heinous crime that leads to a desperate Hollywood cover up. Welcome to “The Capital of Good Looks,” an ephemeral world of celebrity and beauty crashing at the intersection of Hollywood and rock and roll.

“Hollywood satire meets crime fiction―an extremely Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup-style combination of two of our favorite flavors!”―Flavorwire

“Edgy. Pretty shocking. You wonder what the heck is going to happen!”―NPR

“A shrewd and poignant satire of America’s unhealthy obsession with beauty and perfection, Plastic is a brisk and addictive read that you won’t be able to put down! As you would expect from an author who’s also a playwright, the dialogue is razor sharp and crackles like popcorn. Highly recommended!”―Internet Review of Books

“A Raymond Chandleresque vivisection of Tinseltown’s beautymakers.”―Noah Wyle, Theatre, TV, & Film Actor

“Existing at the intersection of Nip/Tuck and Nathanael West, Frank Strausser’s Plastic unwinds the darker side of our national (and regional, distinctly Angeleno) obsession with beauty. In crisp, clear-eyed prose, Strausser takes a theme as old as time―or at least as old as TInseltown―and renews it. Plastic is a blast.―Matthew Specktor, author of American Dream Machine and That Summertime Sound

“Frank Strausser’s novel, Plastic, is a delicious, caustic comedy of manners with a dose of suspense that keeps its pages turning.”―Foreword Reviews, Rating: 5 out of 5

“Plastic pulls back the operating room curtain to reveal Hollywood celebrity in the raw.”―Mike Sager, Esquire contributor and author of The Lonely Hedonist
