Lucy Armstrong is a director of television commercials who’s just been recruited to finish a four-day action-movie shoot. But she arrives on the set to discover that the directing staff has quit, the makeup artist is suicidal, the stars are egomaniacs, the stunt director is her ex-husband, and the lead actor has just acquired as an adviser a Green Beret who has the aggravating habit of always being right.

Green Beret captain J. T. Wilder had thought that hiring on as a military consultant for a movie star was a good deal: easy money and easier starlets. Instead, he has to babysit a bumbling comedian, dodge low-flying helicopters, and resist his attraction to a director who bears a distracting resemblance to Wonder Woman. Then the CIA calls, and he realizes that somebody is taking “shooting a movie” much too literally.

Full of suspense and humor, nonstop action and fast-paced dialogue, Don’t Look Down is the perfect blend of male and female, adventure and romance, Mayer and Crusie.
