Description
In this &;marvelously entertaining&; mystery, a hard-boiled Hollywood private eye investigates a murdered Munchkin on the set of The Wizard of Oz (Newsday).   A year after The Wizard of Oz&;s smash success, the yellow brick road is crumbling. The famous sets have been left standing on a soundstage in the depths of the MGM back lot in case the studio greenlights a sequel. But that doesn&;t explain what Judy Garland is doing there&;or why she finds a Munchkin in full costume, lying facedown with a knife buried in his back.   To avoid even a whiff of scandal and protect Judy&;s wholesome image, the studio boss hires Toby Peters, a Hollywood private detective with a reputation for discretion. But as Peters quickly learns, the real threat to Miss Garland isn&;t the tabloids&;it&;s the psychopathic killer who stalks the back lot and plans to kill the young actress next.   In addition to the murder mystery swirling around Judy Garland, the second Toby Peters novel features cameos from &;Clark Gable and Raymond Chandler [who] give an assist in this imaginative mystery recreated from yesterday&;s movie-land&; (The Plain Dealer, Cleveland).

display_descriptionToby Peters investigates threats to Judy Garland and a body on the MGM lot A year after The Wizard of Oz's smash success, the yellow brick road is crumbling. The famous sets are stashed on a soundstage in the depths of the MGM back lot while the studio plans a sequel, and a strange addition has just been made to the scene: a munchkin in full costume lying facedown with a knife buried in his back. The studio boss calls Toby Peters, a Hollywood detective with a reputation for discretion, and asks for help keeping the murder quiet. MGM is a family company, and Judy Garland, who found the body, is a wholesome actress whose rising star cannot risk a whiff of scandal. But as Peters quickly learns, the threat to Miss Garland isn't the tabloids: It's the psychopathic killer whose turf is the back lot, and whose crime of choice is the murder of the silver screen's finest.
