COME BACK DEAD by Terence Faherty
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Feb. 5, 1997

"But the mystery pays off at the end with enough sockdolagizing surprises for a month at the bijou."
It's 1955, and Orson Welles is riding again—at least a taller, thinner Welles in a wheelchair, a prematurely washed-up director named Carson Drury who, 15 years after his glorious Hollywood debut, First Citizen, is clutching at the chance to jump-start his stalled career by reshooting the ending of the botched second film, The Imperial Albertsons, snatched from his hands by RKO back in 1942.

THE ANGEL FACTORY by Terence Blacker

KILL YOUR DARLINGS by Terence Blacker
FICTION & LITERATURE

"A long in-joke, but a good one."

BOOK REVIEW

KILL ME AGAIN by Terence Faherty
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: May 1, 1996

"More deeply imagined than George Baxt's or Stuart Kaminsky's knockabout nostalgia binges—Elliott's really drunk deep of this postwar disillusionment stuff—but the mystery packs as many curves as Betty Grable."
Faherty, already a veteran of four Owen Keane mysteries (Die Dreaming, 1994, etc.), takes a time machine back to 1947 Hollywood for a new series featuring Scott Elliott, whose dead- end career as a contract player was mercifully cut short by the war. Read full book review >
