Peeps takes movie reviewing to new heights of viciousness. On this prime-time TV show, two caustic critics look at the hits and misses among the new movies, trading wits, insults - even punches.
But even a series with high riatings like Peeps can stare at cancellation - not by the networks, but by murder. Because Dunphy has just been found with a knife in his back in the dressing room of Tobin, his co-host and sparring partner. The cops' script says Tobin - who'd secretly shared the affections of Dunphy's wife and brawled on air with Dunphy the night before - has the motivation for the part of star suspect. But for Tobin, the accusation is hardly entertaining, and he sets out to find the real killer in the cast.

"If Ed Gorman's name doesn't eventulaly become as famous as that of Lawrence Sanders, it's an unjust world. His work is fresh, polished, excitingly paced, thoroughly entertaining - and has something to say about the way we live, the way we are, and what we wish we were." (Dean Koontz)
