It’s a Mystery: The Shooting Script, by Laurence Klavan

3 of 5 stars

The Shooting Script is a light, quirky mystery about a film trivia expert, Roy Milano, who’s hot on the trial of the unreleased Jerry Lewis film, The Day the Clown Died. Unfortunately for Roy, he’s not the only one searching, and when the elderly man who owns the only known copy dies, the race is on. And a deadly race it is, but not so deadly that Roy can’t make time for a variety of trysts with more than one comely woman, each of whom has ulterior motives. More of a romp than a serious mystery, filled with snippets of movie trivia, it’s probably best not to take the book too seriously and just enjoy the wild ride from Philadelphia to Hollywood to Europe and back.
