Product Overview

Old movies, old memories, old crimes and present-day murder. Oakland PI Jeri Howard finds all of these when a chance encounter in a movie memorabilia shop sets her on an investigation into her grandmothers past life in Hollywood. Before marrying Jeris grandfather during World War II, Jerusha Layne worked as a bit player, an actress who spoke a few lines in movie backgrounds. Her dreams of stardom never came true. But did she play another role, that of suspect in the unsolved 1942 murder of an actor? And Jeri must also solve a current mystery: Are old movie posters so valuable that someone would kill for them?

From the Publisher
Editors Note Young and pretty, Jerusha Layne (Jeri Howard's grandmother) spent five years in Tinseltown, working as an extra and bit player in the movies, hoping for stardom. But she found love instead, marrying Ted Howard in 1942, after Pearl Harbor changed everything. But was there another reason Jerusha left town, involving an actor's unsolved murder? And how does this decades-old crime connect with movie memorabilia and modern-day murders?
