In March 1977 teenager and wannabe movie star Laura Marsh disappeared. A year later two men were desperate to find her. On behalf of her parents private detective Max Gwyther was pounding the seedy streets of Cardiff looking for Laura. Meanwhile Dutch crime lord Jan van Leer also had designs on Laura, though his motives were less honourable - he wanted to kill her.
What had Laura been up to during her year on the run? Why was Jan van Leer so keen to murder her? And what part did local crime boss Paul Tregenna play in Laura's life?
Max Gwyther is a private detective based in Porthcawl, South Wales. The Max Gwyther Mystery Series explores a selection of Max's cases from the 1970s through to the millennium. Making Movies is the second novel in this series.
