Book Description


See all titles by Laura Lippman.

The California dream weavers have invaded Charm City with their cameras, their stars, and their controversy. . . . When private investigator Tess Monaghan literally runs into the crew of the fledgling TV series Mann of Steel while sculling, she expects sharp words and evil looks, not an assignment. But the company has been plagued by a series of disturbing incidents since its arrival on location in Baltimore: bad press, union threats, and small, costly on-set "accidents" that have wreaked havoc with its shooting schedule. As a result, Mann's creator, Flip Tumulty, the son of a Hollywood legend, is worried for the safety of his young female lead, Selene Waites, and asks Tess to serve as her bodyguard/babysitter. Tumulty's concern may be well founded. Not long ago a Baltimore man was discovered dead in his own home, surrounded by photos of the beautiful, difficult superstar-in-the-making.

5 of 5 Another Thing to Fall / Mystery April 25, 2010
Reviewer: M. CLEMENT from COLLEGE STATION, TX United States  
Tess Monaghan is out for an early-morning row in Baltimore when she is run-down by a boat manned by a Hollywood film crew shooting a new TV series Mann of Steel. Baltimore residents, particularly former Steel workers would rather that the crew leaves Baltimore.  
While Monahan's clothes are drying from her dunk in the water, the Filmmaker, Flip Tumulty learns Tass is a private detective. Though Tess dislikes the false characters and charade, she agrees to baby-sit and protect the under-age female star, Selene. She accepts the job with the understanding that Crow's rescued youth, Luther is given a job on the film. Set incidents escalate to murder. Plenty of suspects, Ben, the writer, George, the best friend of the man that committed suicide, Alicia, and Greer's ex fiance. Plenty of film trivia is included in this read. Shallowness of Tinseltown is displayed as is the amount of work required to create a TV episode.
