In 1940, Hollywood decided to pay homage to the small New Jersey town where Thomas Alva Edison had lived and worked for nearly fifty years. What better place to hold the World Premiere of Spencer Tracy's Edison, the Man? The idea seemed not only flawless but guaranteed to generate terrific press--until a series of sexual murders breaks out a week before the festivities are scheduled to begin. Already straddled with the ever-reticent Spencer Tracy and overly exuberant starlet Ann Rutherford, M.G.M. publicity girl Edie Koslow is forced to reluctantly hush the crimes and then just as reluctantly solve them in the the midst of studio manipulations and small town politics with only the help and protection of a local mystery man.

We are a small press with a limited advertising budget yet John Dandola's mystery novels have proven to be immensely popular on a regional basis simply by word of mouth. His historical research is as impeccable as his storytelling. Several foreign translations are already in the works and the screen rights for both Dead at the Box Office and Wind of Time have been optioned.From the Author:
Crafting the screenplay for this novel gave me an opportunity to further explore some of the scenes. I have incorporated those elements into this newest edition.
