Tom Cruise is denying that he pressured Amazon to stop selling a book critical of the Church of Scientology.

On Oct. 31, Irish publisher Merlin released "The Complex," in which John Duignan, identified as "a former high-ranking member" of the church in Britain, describes his "dramatic escape" from its "elite para-military group," the Sea Organization. Five days later, Cruise dropped by Amazon's Seattle headquarters to glad-hand staffers and host a sneak peek at his new movie, "Valkyrie."

A few days later, Amazon's British Web site stopped selling "The Complex," explaining to customers that someone mentioned in the book had alleged it defamed him with "false claims."
