The 1940s: Hard-boiled detectives and femmes fatale are box-office gold. In one iconic scene, set in a deserted museum, the private eye arrives too late, and the buxom beauty is throttled by an ominous Egyptian priest. Now: The Black Box Cinema immortalizes Hollywood's Golden Age in its gallery of film noir tributes. But the mannequin of that Egyptian priest is hardly lifeless.
He walks—and a young starlet dies a terrifying death.
Movie mogul Eddie Archer's son is charged with the grisly murder. Eddie calls agent Sean Cameron, who specializes in irregular investigations. As part of an FBI paranormal forensics team, Cameron knows that nightmares aren't limited to the silver screen.
Working with special-effects artist Madison Darvil—who has her own otherworldly gifts—Cameron delves into the malevolent force animating more than one movie monster.…
Yeah! I really enjoyed reading this book, and I was so lucky to get it from NetGalley, yeah, and I just wish that I'd read it more along the time that it was published. Too late! But I did read it, and yeah, I really enjoyed it!
I loved how Madison had the ghost in her apartment, who's was a famous Hollywood star (but before my time, though the name is a bit familiar) he was a pretty great character to read about! Not to mention Madison and Cameron!
It really sucks that the younger Archer was charged with the death, because we know that he didn't do it, but the evidence points to the contrary, so they have to figure out how to prove who really did it, once they figure that out!
I found the characters really great, and the mystery really complex, it all came together very well, and I really enjoyed all of that! And who the bad guy was, I never guessed, and yeah, that's why I love reading mystery books!
This was a really fantastic book, and I need to read more of this series!
