Description
(series)

The creator of P.I. Amos Walker, Old West marshal Page Murdock, and hitman Peter Macklin, as well as the author of the Edgar-nominated Whiskey River, four-time Shamus Award winner Loren Estleman here gives us a different sort of sleuth in a mild-mannered UCLA film archivist named after silent film idol Valentino.

(blurb)

In this first novel of the series, Valentino buys a decrepit movie palace and uncovers a skeleton in the secret Prohibition-era basement; he's not really surprised, but his second discovery floors him—hidden reels of film cut from Erich von Stroheim's long-lost masterpiece Greed. The LAPD wants to take the film as evidence, jeopardizing the precious artifact; if Valentino wants to save his priceless find, then he must solve the murder within 72 hours.

"Great cast, great subject, flawless delivery from a real pro."—Booklist (starred review)
