Series: Street Smart, Book 4. Price: $1.99 $1.49 USD. (25% off until July 31!) Words: 19,180. Language: English. Published: August 29, 2022 by Frayed Edge Press. Categories: Fiction » Mystery & detective » Short Stories, Fiction » Mystery & detective » Hard-Boiled
A failed screenwriter turned private detective has his life turned upside-down when he’s talked into stealing MacGuffin, an unusual memento, from the home of one of Hollywood’s most infamous directors. Set in present-day Baltimore, Stealing MacGuffin pays homage to the likes of Dashiell Hammett and the hard-boiled detective story, while at the same time spoofing Hollywood both past and present.
