Movie Cat by Garrison Allen
The back of the book:
"A Hollywood film crew has descended on Empty Creek to shoot a big-budget western. But the sleepy Arizona town soon becomes the backlot for a shocking murder, leaving the locals asking, who in his right mind would murder flamboyant director C.D. Masterly, the one man destined to put Empty Creek on the big screen?"
"They were interrupted by the principals filing in. They were led by a scowling police chief and they took places at the long, horseshoe-shaped table where the city council members and staff usually sat during what passed as representitive government in Empty Creek."
I haven't read the book yet so I don't know what the line is about but I love the name, Empty Creek in a book about a Hollywood film crew!
I lived and worked in Hollywood for a time and I really enjoyed it and 95% or more of the films, crews, and projects I worked were great, professional and fun. But it was a bit of a crazy time and I can just see pushing the envelope and teasing the stereotypical vices that are associated with Hollywood.
Movie Cat is not the first in the series which explains why it's been on my shelf for so long - I like to read series books in order.
I've got to get my hands on the first one (Desert Cat) - I really think I'll like these books!
