Description
The first in a mystery series set in 1940s Hollywood, where a hard-boiled private eye helps a cast of real-life stars: &;Nostalgic fun&; (Publishers Weekly).   Hollywood, 1940: It&;s been four years since security guard Toby Peters got fired from the Warner Brothers lot for breaking a screen cowboy&;s arm. Since then he&;s scratched out a living as a private detective&;missing persons and bodyguard work mostly&;but now his old friends, the Warners, have a job for him.   Someone has mailed the studio a picture of Errol Flynn caught in a compromising position with an underage woman. Although Flynn insists it&;s a fake, the studio is taking no chances. Peters is to deliver the blackmailer five thousand dollars and return with the photo negative. It should be simple, but Flynn, a swashbuckler on and off the screen, has a way of making things complicated.   Soon it&;s up to Peters to clear Flynn&;s name, following a twisted trail that surprisingly leads to the set of The Maltese Falcon, involving Humphrey Bogart, Peter Lorre, and Sydney Greenstreet. As real-life PI Toby Peters meets Bogie&;s Sam Spade, he doesn&;t fall prey to being star-struck. But he may still fall prey to a killer.   &;If you like your mysteries Sam Spade tough, with tongue in cheek and a touch of the theatrical, then the Toby Peters series is just your ticket.&; &;Houston Chronicle
