|Kill Me Again A Scott Elliott
by Terence Faherty
How do you top your best work? In Hollywood, you make a sequel. That's the plan in 1947 when filming begins on Love Me Again, a follow-up to the beloved wartime romance Passage to Lisbon. But the plan is threatened when the screenwriter is accused of being a Communist. Enter Scott Elliott, a former actor and soldier who is struggling to find a place in a changing Hollywood. To save the movie, Elliott must untangle a tale of murder, secret sin and redemption.
Praise for Terence Faherty and Kill Me Again
"Kill Me Again is a marvelous, meticulously crafted entertainment, recreating the cinematic era of colorful characters who spoke in razor-sharp dialog. And Faherty’s notion of a sequel to Casablanca is great fun–even if the rest of the novel weren’t so wonderful, you wouldn’t want to miss it."
The Drood Review
"Alive with the music of 1947, the voices of the era, the smell of the postwar, refreshingly straightforward and evocative, Kill Me Again is easily one of the best of the year. Don’t miss it."
"Edgar-nominated author Faherty has a feel for the way we all think Hollywood types act when the cameras aren’t rolling, and he feeds our fantasies with deft characterizations and right-on dialogue."
"The mystery packs as many curves as Betty Grable."
"Faherty (who writes the elegant Owen Keane mysteries about a metaphysical detective) puts together an intricately plotted thriller that is not only plausible but peopled with intriguing and very human characters. Elliott has just enough angst and anger, and he’s the best Los Angeles guide since Philip Marlowe."
