Trouble brews when their matinee idol star, Johnny Cutter, keeps showing up late for filming or not showing up at all, and he is just the tip of a very deep iceberg involving dope, too much booze, organized crime bosses and ‘white slavery.’ The Johnny Cutter is found dead.
Harry Lord, loosely based on long time film mogul of Columbia Pictures, Harry Cohn, orders Brand to get to the bottom of Cutters’ murder and there follows his slow uncovering of the dark shadows surrounding well known actresses and actors.
This is part mystery, part novelization of those days when Hollywood was transitioning to talkies and nearing the beginning of the Depression and the end of Prohibition, and part sad tale of a detective brother, his war wounded twin, and the love and salvation he seeks in finding the truth behind Hollywood’s illusions.
This is definite must read for anyone interested in film with a multi-layered mystery for suspense and significance.
