About ALL THAT GLITTERS:
In Michael Murphy’s rollicking new Jake & Laura mystery, the hard-boiled writer and the aspiring movie star head for sun-drenched Los Angeles, where a cold-blooded murderer lurks behind the scenes.
Just arrived from New York, Broadway actress Laura Wilson is slated to star in Hollywood’s newest screwball comedy. At her side, of course, is Jake Donovan, under pressure to write his next mystery novel. But peace and quiet are not to be had when an all-too-real murder plot intrudes: After a glitzy party, the son of a studio honcho is discovered dead from a gunshot wound. And since Jake exchanged words with the hothead just hours before his death, the bestselling author becomes the LAPD’s prime suspect.
In 1930s Tinseltown, anything goes. Proving his innocence won’t be easy in a town where sex, seduction, and naked power run rampant. With gossip columnist Louella Parsons dead-set on publicizing the charges against him, Jake has no choice but to do what everyone else does in the City of Angels: act like someone else. Blackie Doyle, the tough-talking, fist-swinging, womanizing hero from Jake’s novels wouldn’t pull any punches until he exposed the real killer—nor will Jake, to keep the role of a lifetime from being his last.
“I’d been to parties like this before, sprinkled with actors and rich businessmen who owned expensive cars and flashy dames.”
About author MICHAEL MURPHY:
I began my first novel in 1999, wow I’ve been writing novels for fifteen years. I live in Arizona with my wife of 42 years, our four dogs, a ferel cat, a few chickens, and in the past year we adopted five of our grandchildren.
My life and my writing has been a fabulous journey. 2014 saw my Woodstock novel, Goodbye Emily, selected by Bethel Woods Center for the Arts (the site of Woodstock) as their first summer book club read. I also traveled there and met a great group of people including a number of people who attended the festival in 1969.
2014 also saw the release of my first Jake and Laura novel, The Yankee Club, by a fabulous publisher, Random House Alibi. It’s received fabulous reviews.
The second in the series, All That Glitters, finds Jake and Laura in Hollywood in 1933, the naughtiest and bawdiest year in Tinseltown history. That novel will be released January 6.
Special thanks to all the readers who’ve purchased The Yankee Club and posted reviews on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, etc. You’re the best.
Hope 2014 was a great year for everyone. May your new year be filled with joy and prosperity.
