Stoney Winston, Harvard grad and would-be Hollywood script-writer, is functioning meanwhile as a general factotumprop-man, ``director,'' anything that pays the rentfor the shifty operator of a grubby little studio making sexy soda-pop commercials. Suddenly everything changes: an 18-year-old girl specializing in straight hard-core pron is missing; her stepmother is being blackmailed to pay up or a particularly damning film will be released and she will face certain ruin in business. Can Stoneytough-talking, without illusions, endowed with an uncommon gift for finding anythingfind film and girl? The hunt will lead him through the porn foundries and other moral sewers of movieland, through bloodshed and assorted mayhem. Stinson is clever and witty, and his hero is often too much of a wise-guy for his ownand the reader'sgood, but this is a literate mystery and an entertaining read. November

DOUBLE EXPOSURE, as a mystery, has that special quirkiness that takes it out of the run-of-the-mill alphabet series. Stinson's characters are amusing and original, including his imaginary Hollywood companions. I like mysteries that are an entertaining read with an out of the ordinary author, not just cookie-cutter who-done-its. This one fills the bill in spades.

Well written with a bit of dry humor mixed in...

A unique take on murder. The book starts well before the murder takes place and when a young women is found dead she is misidentified; leading to two more murders. This author uses very colorful word picture descriptions. This is a great read that shows a little blackmail can set-off a chain reactions of unintended consequences.

Passed it up earlier. Glad i tried it. Much better than l expected it to be.

Lots of twists and interwoven storylines make this book interesting though it was not really suspenseful. The conversations with imagined long-dead characters is strange. And though the overview of this book says it is newly proofed and edited, there are still quite a few misspelled words and typos, the most confusing of which was a capital C in place of every hyphen. Still overall a fun free read.

Story line was good but tended to drag out too long. For the most part, the book was boring. Too much jumping around. I found the dialog with his imaginary characters boring. I sped read to the end to see what the outcome was and did a lot of skipping. Would not recommend.

I finally finished this though it was hard to do, first the typos. Then I had trouble gettingvthe pages to turn correctly [probably b&n's problem). The story was much better than I expected.

Casual read. Not terribly thought provoking, but there were some decent twists. Unfortunately the author seemed a little hung up on what I could only call adolescent sexual fantasies, which I feel detracted from the plot. There are some odd formatting errors that replace the first letter of some sentences with another letter, space or punctuation mark, which is distracting. Overall an ok read if you don't mind formatting errors and lapses into adolescent fantasies (including at inappropriate times such as upon seeing a dead female.)
