Jack Levine, New York's wisecracking private eye, goes to Hollywood in February of 1947 to help a nervous screenwriter pal and discovers a movie captial rife with fear and mistrust. It is the dawn of the blacklist and LeVine stumbles into an entangled web involving Richard Nixon, Bogart and Bacall, Ava Gardner, John Garfield, the FBI and the House Committee on Un-American Activities plus a couple of murders to solve a case that begins and ends where fantasy and reality collide, a Hollywood movie lot.

A mix of period Hollywood, fact and fiction and just terrific reading.
