Publisher's Summary

John Ray Horn was once Sierra Lane, hero of a series of cheap westerns. Now he makes ends meet by collecting debts for his old Indian co-star, Joseph Mad Crow. A chance encounter brings Horn into contact with an old flame, movie actress Rose Galen. Now, Rose is a sad, shattered, drink-sodden creature. Hoping to uncover her long-held secret, Horn goes to her shabby rooming house. He finds her strangled. With the aid of Mad Crow he sets out to find her killer, and her secret. His search takes him back into the Hollywood of the 1920s, a terrible act and a secret that would only begin to unravel after Rose Galen took her last tortured breath.

Critic Reviews

"The period is brilliantly captured, the characters are complex, and the author combines pace, surprises, humour and emotion with a wonderful literary style." (Huddersfield Daily Examiner)
