This fast paced detective thriller is set in Hollywood during the 1940s. A great mystery that will keep you guessing until the end. Plenty of twists and turns. Especially enjoyed the narrative description of landmarks and lifestyle's during that era. Really felt like I was there too.
Anything Short of Murder is a great book! It reminds me of the great hard-boiled detective novels of the first half of the twentieth century... and reads like it too! Tom Logan is a private investigator who finds himself in the middle of Hollywood (during its illustrious 1930s Golden Age). On the surface level, everything is glamorous and cinematic, until Logan gets deeper and deeper into the corruption and disillusionment of its gritty realism. Anything Short of Murder is a book for any classic film lover, any classic mystery "Whodunit" lover, and any lover of pure fun entertainment! I highly recommend if you want to get thoroughly sucked completely into a book.
