Shamus in the Green Room (Cece Caruso Mysteries)
3 journalers for this copy...
Los Angeles writer Cece Caruso is thrilled that her biography of the legendary Dashiell Hammett is headed for the big screen. Rafe Simic, the actor cast as the lead, may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer, but the money she'll make tutoring him in the ABCs of The Maltese Falcon and The Thin Man should be good enough to feed Cece's addiction to vintage Yves St. Laurent.
But when the dead body of one of Rafe's old flames is discovered—and neither the "facts" nor the hunky star's alibi add up—Cece can't help but ask questions. However, the twists in this case would confound Sam Spade himself. And in her zeal to win justice for the deceased, Cece might end up pulling the plug on the movie—if someone doesn't pull the plug on Cece first.

My Review: I really love this series! The CeCe Caruso character is eccentric, but fun. The story in this one was not as strong as in the others, but the way the puzzle pieces fell into place was interesting. It looks like there are just two more in this series, the author hasn't published any since 2009. I'm looking forward to reading more.
I love old movies and the history behind the people and places of Hollywood. That part is really fascinating to me. In this one, the story is that a famous actor named Rafe Simic is playing Dashiell Hammett in a movie based on the book by CeCe. He isn't good at research, so his manager hires CeCe to coach him on Dash Hammett so that he can play the part well.
