More About the Author

Stuart M. Kaminsky (1934-2009) was one of the most prolific crime fiction authors of the last four decades. Born in Chicago, he spent his youth immersed in pulp fiction and classic cinema--two forms of popular entertainment which he would make his life's work. After college and a stint in the army, Kaminsky wrote film criticism and biographies of the great actors and directors of Hollywood's Golden Age. In 1977, when a planned biography of Charlton Heston fell through, Kaminsky wrote Bullet for a Star, his first Toby Peters novel, beginning a fiction career that would last the rest of his life.

Kaminsky penned twenty-four novels starring the detective, whom he described as "the anti-Philip Marlowe." In 1981's Death of a Dissident, Kaminsky debuted Moscow police detective Porfiry Rostnikov, whose stories were praised for their accurate depiction of Soviet life. His other two series starred Abe Lieberman, a hardened Chicago cop, and Lew Fonseca, a process server. In all, Kaminsky wrote more than sixty novels. He died in St. Louis in 2009.

Format: Hardcover
Mr. Kaminsky is one of the best cosy mystery writers in the business.

His Toby Peters mysteries take place in the late 30's and early 40's.

Lots of old movie, song, war and product trivia.

He also wraps his mysteries around some old well known movie actor.

The mysteries give you enough clues so you are miles ahead of Toby Peters in solving them.

I especially like these mysteries as I was born during Herbert Hoover's presidency.

Mr. Kaminsky's books are all great.

Great feel for early Hollywood. Always enjoy Toby Peters and his cast of characters. Mysteries are well thought out and the characters are fun to read. Would have loved to see this series go on forever.
