Overview

Includes 2012 Shamus nominee "A Bullet from Yesterday"! As Hollywood's golden age wanes, private eye Scott Elliott digs among the ruins. Eight stories include the never-before-published "Sleep Big," in which Elliott cracks a case that famously eluded Philip Marlowe. In "Garbo's Knees," a paving square signed by the reclusive screen idol has gone missing. But was it Garbo's stone the thief was after? Chasing stray actresses, hot jewelry, and a gun that may have started a war, Scott Elliott demonstrates once again two-time Shamus winner Terence Faherty's sharp eye and keen ear for characters living on broken dreams. "Faherty writes this period like he was there." Crime Spree
