Come Back Dead

'“The mystery pays off at the end with enough sockdolagizing surprises for a month at the bijou.” —Kirkus Reviews   “Faherty’s deft plotting makes good on every little clue he plants, while pointing us and his hero toward all sorts of folks who just have to be the killer—except they aren’t. In the end, we find a murderer who manages to win our sympathy and a wunderkind who, for all his arrogance and deceit, turns out to be a man of reflection and insight.” —The Indianapolis Star   “I was hooked on the ambience of old Hollywood and an Indiana that doesn’t much exist anymore, and on the strength of Faherty’s characterizations, especially the wily, dissembling Drury and a dying, cancer-ridden movie tough guy unmistakably fashioned after Humphrey Bogart. Elliott makes a tough and principled protagonist in this unique and satisfying series.” —The Plain Dealer   “With enough red herrings here to fill several mysteries, Faherty stretches Elliott’s detective skills to the limit.” —The Washington Post   “Strong atmosphere, a hard-boiled hero, and an evocative look at contemporary Hollywood names, events, and places.” —Library Journal   “Evocative period detail compliments a clever plot and likeable hero.” —Booklist'
