about


IMAGINE AN ELMORE LENOARD STORY, INSPIRED BY BOB HOPE AND DIRECTED BY QUENTIN TARANTINO. GOT THE PICTURE? NOW WE’RE OFF & RUNNING…

Struggling writer Jack Dillon’s personal and professional life is falling apart…until he gets a lucrative gig writing the biography of TV comedy icon Walt Stuckey, who mysteriously walked away from Hollywood at the height of his popularity…and left his millions of fans wondering why for decades. Now Walt’s going to answer the tantalizing question, assuring that his biography will become a massive bestseller and Jack’s salvation. But when Walt is finally ready to tell Jack his big secret, things go terribly, unpredictably wrong, pushing the desperate author into kidnapping…becoming a fugitive chased by the police, the FBI, the news media, a crazed assassin, and Walt’s talentless & psychopathic son…just to finish the book. It’s a brutally original, crazy ride through California, Death Valley and TV history as Jack tries to solve the mystery and craft a perfect finale that doesn’t end with him going to prison… or to his grave.

“Philip Reed’s smartly written novel will have readers off and running from the first word and they won’t stop until the pages run out,” Reed Farrel Coleman, Author of Robert B. Parkers Blind Spot

“Bizarre showbiz-family dysfunction offers plausibility to the wild plot, which ultimately involves media czar William Paley, Bebe Rebozo, and the dirty tricksters in the Nixon White House. Somehow it all works. Great fun,” Booklist
