Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Someone wants Gary Cooper to make a movie badly enough to resort to threats, blackmail, and murder. But when private eye Toby Peters arrives on the scene, things start to get interesting. High Midnight, Kaminsky's (Bullet for a Star, Audio Reviews, LJ 11/1/94) 1981 comedic mystery, is set during the golden days of Hollywood. With news of World War II in the background and the price of Ann Page spaghetti at two cans for 13, Kaminsky's private eye wends his way through the Hollywood hills, hunting for the killers and running into the likes of Ernest Hemingway. Along the way, Toby stumbles over corpses, avoids stray bullets, and tries to keep from being turned into a Kosher hot dog by some menacing East Coast thugs. Despite these promising elements, though, the story line and characters are weak. Narrator Christopher Lane makes a gallant effort to infuse some life into this audiobook but to little avail. High Midnight is not one of Kaminsky's best. Not recommended.-Gretchen Browne, Rockville Centre P.L., N.Y.
