Vintage Silver Age Mystery
Scavenger Hunt Category: Just One Person
Date Finished: September 9, 2016
Starting out somewhat whacky with Brock Callahan’s young aunt and her newest husband purchasing an “ugly” Beverly Hills mansion from a silent movie star, the party turns somber as the movie star is found murdered. Brock digs into the backgrounds of various characters and turns up the big secret that led to the crime. Brock is upstanding with an honest voice as the narrator. Gault’s writing is excellent, though the mystery is not quite complicated enough here with too few red herring characters. Still, a fun read.
