"Beautifully written with all the period details dead-on, dialogue so breezy it'll make your hair stand on end, and a twisty, dangerous plot that keeps you guessing, THE STUDIO KILL is the Real McCoy. Buy it and do like I did-stay up all night and take one long wild ride."
-Robert Ward, author of Red Baker and Four Kinds of Rain

Our hero, John McClellan, is head of security for a big Hollywood studio in 1947. In cleaning up after the various stars, directors and contract players, he finds a staged suicide. Bodies start piling up, he meets a dame, disappoints some people, helps some others. Good story. Lots of name dropping in believable situations. Very noir. Spare language. Good descriptions. Vivid characters. Received free copy for review.
