Description
It's the early days of Hollywood - movies are just starting to come into their own and gain in popularity. New stars are made, but they are certainly not in the scandal sheets. Amidst this new world, Willian Desmond Taylor, a successful director at the Famous Players Studio, is found shot dead in his home - could it have been the star Mary Miles Minter, or a former butler? Another delectable mystery as only Geary can tell them!
