Award winning actor leaps to death — suicide or murder?

Is it suicide or murder when Academy Award winning actor Jason Londell leaps to his death during the filming of a TV show in Miami? Londell’s actress girlfriend hires private investigators James Lessor and Skip Moore to investigate. They uncover a plot loaded with twists and fueled by money and greed.

The case sends James, Skip, and Skip’s girlfriend Emily to Los Angeles where the blonde beauty goes undercover in Hollywood and is “discovered” by a talent agent. The normally level-headed Emily gets carried away by the dream of a career in pictures, but true to the cause of the case, she works with the guys to bring down the killer.

Caught up in the world of movies, actors, actresses, and Hollywood, the trio finds that it really is the land of make-believe — but murder is still the real thing.


"Such deductive leaps are what makes this book such fun to read. This is the least well-qualified pair of PIs I can recall meeting and, as a measure of their success, driving a used box truck in need of repair says it all. Hot Stuff is a good puzzle, solved with wit and style." —San Francisco/Sacramento Book Review

"The best thing about this book, apart from the food of course, is its eccentric characters, whether they own the place, or they cook, or they simply investigate the case. They are angry, they are funny, they are obnoxious or lovely, and they all have something to add to the plot. In the end all we have to say is that Hot Stuff is a delicious mystery." —www.criminalelement.com

"Inspired by Les Standiford’s book Last Train to Paradise, this sill caper just happens to share some Florida history too.  Recommend for those looking for a chuckle, movie quotes (Skip and James’s specialty), and something along the lines of Dave Barry.” Library Journal
