Synopsis: Old movies, old memories, old crimes - and present-day murder. Oakland PI Jeri Howard finds all of these when a chance encounter in a movie memorabilia shop sets her on an investigation into her grandmother's past life in Hollywood. Before marrying Jeri's grandfather during World War II, Jerusha Layne worked as a bit player, an actress who spoke a few lines in movie backgrounds. Her dreams of stardom never came true. But did she play another role, that of suspect in the unsolved 1942 murder of an actor? And Jeri must also solve a current mystery: Are old movie posters so valuable that someone would kill for them?
About the Author: Janet Dawson is the author of ten novels about PI Jeri Howard. Kindred Crimes won the St. Martin's Press/PWA best first PI novel contest, also earning Shamus, Macavity, and Anthony nominations. Dawson has been an enlisted journalist in the Navy, and now works for the University of California. Dawson says, "In a way, I grew up at the movies. My mother's family owned movie theaters from the 1920s till the 1970s.” Dawson spent time as a child helping her aunt sell popcorn and watching her uncle lift huge film reels onto the projectors, to spin out dreams on the silver screen.
