Overview

Come Back Dead by Terence Faherty

A disgraced director wants a comeback, but a rival wants him dead

Carson Drury’s first movie was a smash hit that raised his reputation from that of boy genius to greatest director of all time. His second film, The Imperial Albertsons, was even more ambitious, but aggressive editing from the suits at RKO Pictures ruined the movie, and Drury’s career with it. Now RKO is dead—killed by the upstart medium known as television—and Drury wants to buy his movie and reedit it, his way. It’s up to Scott Elliott to make sure Drury lives to see the final cut.
 
A detective working for the ultraexclusive Hollywood Security Agency, Elliott spends his days and nights helping the stars keep their private lives private. There is someone out there who will kill to keep the new version of The ImperialAlbertsons from ever seeing the light of day, and Elliott will turn Hollywood upside down to find him.

About the Author

Terence Faherty (b. 1954) is an American author of mystery novels. Born in Trenton, New Jersey, he studied at Boston College and Rider College (now Rider University) before moving to Indianapolis, where he took a job as a technical writer. He also began attending writing workshops organized by the Indiana Writers Center, an experience that led him to write novels, beginning with Deadstick (1991). Nominated for an Edgar Award for best first novel, Deadstick introduced Owen Keane, an ex-seminarian who uses his metaphysical background to solve mysteries.
 
Faherty has written seven other novels starring Keane, including Live to Regret (1992) and Eastward in Eden (2013). In 1996 he began writing about the old-fashioned private detective Scott Elliott, a hard-boiled gumshoe whose adventures, chronicled in books like Come Back Dead (1997) and Raise the Devil (2000), are infused with the flavor of old Hollywood. Faherty’s most recent novel is The Quiet Woman (2014).
