About this title


Caught in a career slump, actor Philip Fletch is delighted to be offered a lucrative part in a movie, but, after accepting, he finds his life suddenly being threatened during filming and must turn the tables on his predator in an attempt to save his life from impending harm.

From Booklist:

Brit Philip Fletcher is the archetypal actor--egotistical, insecure, and vice-ridden, none of which keeps him from playing his favorite role, that of amateur sleuth, when the situation demands. In Shaw's latest, Philip is drinking too much and not working enough. Then he is offered a part in a new Kenneth Kilmaine film. Philip is thrilled, even though he hasn't a clue who Kilmaine is. When he shows up on the set, Philip finds himself surrounded by has-beens, never-weres, and hangers-on, not a real actor or director in the bunch. Matters worsen quickly as Philip becomes the intended victim of a series of would-be fatal "accidents." With the help of his new protege, a young burglar called George Washington, Philip unearths the culprits and wins the girl--er, make that girls. The strengths of this delightfully entertaining mystery are the humor, which ranges from rapier-sharp wit to guffaw-inducing burlesque, and the larger-than-life characters who populate the pages. It's fabulous, darling! Emily Melton
