Synopsis: Hollywood detective Toby Peters does a job for one of Tinseltown’s finest
It’s been four years since security guard Toby Peters got fired from the Warner Brothers lot for breaking a screen cowboy’s arm. Since then he’s scratched out a living as a private detective—missing persons and bodyguard work, mostly—but now his old friends, the Warners, have a job for him. Someone has mailed the studio a picture of Errol Flynn caught in a compromising position with a very young girl. Although Flynn insists it’s a fake, the studio is taking no chances. Toby is to deliver the blackmailer $5,000 and return with the photo negative. It should be simple, but Flynn, a swashbuckler on and off the screen, has a way of making things complicated. Though he isn’t impressed by movie stars, if Toby Peters isn’t careful he may end up dying for one.
From the Back Cover: Toby Peters looked at the glossy photograph. Yes that was Errol Flynn in the picture. And, yes, there was a girl with him... a very young girl. They were both birthday naked, and seemed to be enjoying themselves. No wonder Flynn and Warner Brothers were nervous -- if the photograph wasn't a fake, the studio's investment in the star was in serious jeopardy.
Toby found the picture where he was supposed to find it. He wasn't planning to get hit on the head, though, or to find a corpse when he awoke. The first of a series of corpses, scattered all over Hollywood.
The trail Toby follows in order to clear Flynn -- and himself -- takes him throughout the film colony and, finally onto the set of The Maltese Falcon, were Bogie, Lorre, and Greenstreet find themselves playing roles that weren't rehearsed -- but whose execution had to be picture perfect.
