Synopsis: √Ę‚ ¨Ň Who in hell are the Sons of the Desert?√Ę‚ ¨¬ Hilary Quayle asked. √Ę‚ ¨Ň We're an organization devoted to Laurel and Hardy films. Sons of the Desert is the name of one of the best of the Laurel and Hardy feature films.√Ę‚ ¨¬ But what Hilary Quayle√Ę‚ ¨‚ Ęs secretary, Gene, didn't tell her was that women were not permitted to join the organization. When Hilary found out, she wasn√Ę‚ ¨‚ Ęt pleased, so she crashed a Sons of the Desert meeting. She wasn't intending to stir up major trouble; she certainly didn√Ę‚ ¨‚ Ęt expect to witness an on-stage murder. As always, it is Hilary who must solve the crime. Smart, independent, and enterprising, Hilary conducts her search for the killer in her usual methodical way. She takes the reader with her on a journey deep down into a show business netherworld that is rarely seen by outsiders. The characters in The Laurel and Hardy Murders include several real people√Ę‚ ¨‚ some of them celebrities√Ę‚ ¨‚ who are members of the society of film buffs founded by the late Stan Laurel as a parody of all fraternal organizations. Marvin Kaye, in real life the one-time president of the Sons of the Desert, recreates the outrageously rowdy atmosphere of the club, shatters it with a spectacular murder, and then leads the reader through the tortuous process of finding and apprehending the killer.

About the Author:

Marvin Kaye (b. 1938) is the author of more than forty books. Born in Philadelphia, he attended college at the University of Pennsylvania, graduating with advanced degrees in theater and English literature. After reporting for the national newspaper Grit for several years, he moved to New York City and found work in publishing. He published his first nonfiction book, The Histrionic Holmes, in 1971, and followed it with the mystery novel A Lively Game of Death (1972), which introduced sleuthing public relations agent Hilary Quayle, Kaye’s most famous character. 

In addition to five Quayle novels, Kaye has written and edited dozens of works of fiction and nonfiction. He is also one of the founders of the Open Book, New York City’s oldest continuously operating reading theater. In 2010, the theater produced Kaye’s Mister Jack, a comedy about Don Juan. Before his retirement, Kaye taught creative writing at New York University, and regularly performed improvised comedy at the Jekyll & Hyde Club. 



Dina is an actress living and working in New York City. Dina has been seen in various roles in movies, TV and in the theater. She has also done some stand-up comedy. She has written two one-woman shows. Dina is originally from New Jersey.
