Rise of the Phoenix

Rise of the Phoenix

Larger Than Lyfe II

In this scintillating follow-up to Larger Than Lyfe, Keshari Mitchell returns to Los Angeles after faking her death, hoping to escape a life of crime.

After an extreme, identity-altering makeover in Brazil, Keshari Mitchell is back—as “Darian Boudreaux.” Now rising from the ashes, she plans to take the film industry by storm with her company, Phoenix Films, which has acquired a controversial script from an anonymous source. It’s the scandal-filled story of a record mogul—Keshari Mitchell herself—and it reveals shocking details about her connections to organized crime. The film promises to kill at the box office, but . . .

Will returning to L.A. turn out to be the biggest mistake of her life? Will the deadliest gangsters from her past come running to see her film—or come gunning to watch her die . . . again?

Sex, deception, money, and murder—it’s all here, in the explosive story of one amazing woman who dared to live two outrageous lives.
