Editorial Reviews

Bill Borgers
A GOOD READ! Largely humorous throughout, and has some very funny parts in the Donald Westlake vein.
Hard-Boiled Mysteries
Frank Wardega
Nathaniel West's 'Day of the Locust' shaken in a Chandler shaker but poured into a tawdry Harold Robbins/Jacqueline Susann glass...The book is a page turner and every character in it is richly drawn...Recommended with reservations--don't tell my English teachers, my minister, or my wife.
Reviewing the Evidence
J Pierce
Most Wanted Reads'! "Dark humor and a smart-alecky first-person point of view elevate this book above the heap...

What People are saying about this

Sharon M. Nogg
William Prendergast's 'Forbidden Hollywood' is a bit like Raymond Chandler meets Damon Runyon on Hollywood and Vine. Characters abound with some twists that are almost not to be believed, but he makes it work.
