Home About Help Search. Stahr beholds two women desperately clinging to the head of a statue — finding one of them to be the spitting image of his late wife.
The day after, Stahr asks his secretary to identify the girls for him. She presents him with a phone number which he immediately uses to arrange a meeting with one of the girls.
Unfortunately, it is not the girl he wished to see, she does not resemble his wife at all. Stahr gives her a ride home, where she insists that he'd come in and meet her friend the young Irish-born Kathleen Moore.
As soon as Moore opens the front door, Stahr recognises her to be the woman he had seen the other night. Kathleen withstands his advances to her and even refuses to tell him her name.
It is only when Stahr happens to meet her again at a party that he can convince her to go out and have a cup of coffee with him.
He drives her to the building site of his new house in Santa Monica. Kathleen seems reluctant to be with Stahr, but she still ends up having sex with him.
A short time afterwards, Stahr receives a letter in which Kathleen confesses to have been engaged to another man for quite some time. She has now decided to marry him despite having fallen in love with Stahr.
Stahr asks Cecelia to arrange for a meeting with a suspected communist who wants to organise a labour union within the film studio.
Stahr and Cecelia meet the man over supper where Stahr gets drunk and gets involved in a violent confrontation.
Cecelia takes care of him and they grow closer. Cecelia's father, however, becomes more and more unhappy with Stahr as a business partner and has wanted to get rid of him for a long while.
He could not approve less of his daughter's fancying him. Brady knows of Stahr's continued affair with the now-married Kathleen and tries to blackmail him into leaving the company.
As he fails to achieve his goal via blackmail, he does not even shy away from hiring a professional killer. Stahr survives, and, in retaliation, also appoints a man to have Brady killed.
Unlike Brady's, Stahr's conscience starts to trouble in. But, just as he contemplates calling the execution off, his plane crashes on its way back to New York City.
The contract killer finishes his job unhindered and leaves Cecelia both without a father and without a lover — the two men who meant the world to her.
Fitzgerald wrote the novel in a blend of first person and third person narrations. While the story is ostensibly told by Cecelia, many scenes are narrated in which she is not present.
Occasionally a scene will be presented twice, once through Cecelia and once through a third party.
