THRILLING HOLLYWOOD NOIR WITH A HORRIFIC WEB OF INTRIGUE & SUSPENSE (ARTISAN BOOK REVIEWS)
HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA, AUGUST 2005.
Rich MacGuffin, an aspiring actor with a talent for acting but a distinct lack of tinsel town looks, struggles to find work that will lead him on the road to stardom.
When a series of murders takes place by an elusive serial killer nicknamed THE HOLLYWOOD SPECTRE, and one of those victims is the star in a movie in the process of being shot, MacGuffin comes up with a unique idea that will land him the starring role.
Finally, MacGuffin gets his chance to show his acting ability, and he shines. But the killer is still on the prowl and seeking revenge against those from his past. MacGuffin unwittingly becomes involved with the LAPD and FBI as they hunt the killer and the bodies stack up.
Uncaged Review: This book starts out pretty fast,
and also with almost too much going on to the point
of wondering how all this will come together and
play out. But the authors do a great job bringing all
the frayed ends of this noir crime story together. At
times I even laughed out loud. This is a very twisted
thriller that most crime readers will really enjoy. This
is definitely a plot driven storyline and I would have
liked to see these characters flushed out a bit more, as
they felt a bit off in their reactions.
The pacing is great, and it kept me entertained, and
those that know me and my reading preferences know
that if a suspense novel keeps me turning pages, it’s
worth a look. Reviewed by Cyrene
