The year is 1938; the place, Hollywood. At the height of a massive re-enactment of the Civil War, Atlanta is burning in the biggest scene in the biggest movie ever made. Toby Peters is on the security detail. It's easy work, Toby needs the money, and he gets to meet Clark Gable, the celebrated star of Selznick International Pictures' smash epic-in-the-making, Gone With the Wind.Then suddenly, Toby's and everybody else's job becomes a lot more complicated. A Confederate-uniformed extra is found lying in a ditch, a sword plunged through his stomach. The studio wants to keep the murder quiet. But Toby can swear he saw Gable, Rhett Butler himself, watching from the shadows as they haul the body away....Cut to Los Angeles, early 1943. Toby Peters is five years older and not much richer, once again in need of work and a fresh start. The great Gable is wealthier than ever, and in mourning for the beautiful Carole Lombard, recently dead in a plane crash. He's receiving anonymous death threats in poetry. No mere flights of lurid lyricism, the notes may be part of a real and present danger: someone has begun killing people who witnessed the burning of Atlanta - and possibly a murder - back in '38.

display_descriptionTo avenge a long-ago death, a killer puts Toby Peters in his sights On December 10, 1938, Atlanta burned again. In the back lot at David O. Selznick's studio, sets from a dozen old pictures were pushed together and set alight to provide a backdrop for the climax of what Selznick promised to be the movie of the century: Gone with the Wind. Toby Peters, then just a studio security guard, was on hand to help keep the dozens of Confederate extras in line. When the fire was over, he found one of them dead, impaled on his own sword. Five years later, Toby scratches out a living as a private detective for Hollywood's finest, several of whom have just been marked for death. On the back of a cryptic poem is a list of names of men who were on the scene the night the extra died. Two are already dead. One is Clark Gable. The other is Toby himself.
