1st in series set in 1930's Hollywood. Toby Peters investigates the murder of a munchkin on the set of Wizard of OZ
Stuart Kaminsky's gumshoe Toby Peters mixes with Hollywood royalty in the 1930s and '40s, as he solves mysteries of murder and mayhem with the help of his detective brother, a dentist who is his office-mate of questionable abilities), a pro-wrestler turned poet and building manager, and of course the galaxy of studio stars who seek his help. Anyone who loves the Golden Age of Hollywood and a good mystery will love the Toby Peters series.
This was a short but good read. I really enjoyed it. Twists and turns prevented me from knowing who and why until almost the end.
This was an interesting read. It was fun imagining the conversations with some of Hollywood's old stars like Clark Gable and Judy Garland. Had some good twists to it as well. Would definately recommend to anyone that is a fan of old Hollywood and mysteries.
middle age,bad back,a mass of scars, healing bullet wound,former COP,and brother of a COP.
it is now 1940,the WIZARD OF OZ is a pleasant memory. judy garland finds a dead little person in munchkin clothes on the yellow brick road, in a sound stage,she calls Toby Peters, now a P.I.
MGM wants him to solve the case,and keep it out of the papers,and keep someone from killing judy garland.
