9780312014438: The Hollywood Murder Casebook

Chronicles some of the most sensational crimes to hit Hollywood's high society, from Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle's three trails for the same offence in 1921, to the massacre at Sharon Tate's mansion, to the stabbing of Sal Mineo

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly:

This superficial survey investigates 13 mysterious Hollywood deaths, some of them possible murders, others perhaps suicides. Munn is particularly interested in unsolved cases, like the fatal shooting of director William Desmond Taylor in 1922, the death of actor-writer-director-producer Thomas Ince in 1924, which, the author speculates, may have occurred aboard William Randolph Hearst's yacht, and the simultaneous deaths of actor Gig Young and his bride Kim Schmidt in 1978. Also covered are infamous cases involving the gunning down of underworld figure Bugsy Siegel, Cheryl Crane's stabbing of her mother Lana Turner's lover, the Sharon Tate massacre and the knifing of Sal Mineo. Munn's (Kirk Douglas, Charlton Heston) overview is macabre and so sketchy that some cases are dealt with in as few as five pages. Photos.
