A prominent film scholar is butchered in the famous courtyard of Grauman’s Chinese Theater. Why was he being pursued by a cult of Charlie Chaplin lookalikes? What secret did his latest manuscript hold and who are the two sword-wielding Samurai Sisters who remind private investigator Thor Johnson of Lillian and Dorothy Gish? What kind of madness is being unleashed on the Los Angeles Film Festival? And who is the mysterious Balthazar Sandow and what exactly is “The Bureau of Lost Films.”
A violent and funny smorgasbord of silent film references meets science fiction meets Quentin Tarantino. A novel now in production for 2016.
