A long shadow looms above her. Then a hand clamps over her mouth and a blade sinks into her back. Blood splatters on the film reel case beside her, and a young life is cut short.

Lawyer Matthew Hope gets a call from Carlton Markham, who’s been arrested for his filmmaker wife’s murder but says he didn’t do it. Witnesses fly forward to proclaim his guilt, but Markham’s not giving up that easily on his innocence. And when Matthew digs deeper into the victim’s business—from heavy financial backers to sleazy egomaniacs—he finds she may not have been the perfect lady she had seemed. The one piece of evidence that could set Markham free and finger the real killer is the victim’s film reel. Only it’s gone, along with the film’s sexy star. Now Matthew needs to infiltrate the seedy side of the film industry in order to find the missing reel and solve the murder.

From master storyteller Ed McBain, Puss in Boots is another Matthew Hope Mystery classic, the tale of a woman who aimed too high and the many men who fell for it all. Download and start listening now!

    " Pretty good Ed McBain novel set in the world of porn filmmaking. Also reads a little like John Grisham at times. McBain has the ability to have lots of characters telling their story within the novel without it becoming too clunky or complex. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheldon Lehman | 9/22/2013

    " This one started off like it would be marginally better than the last ones, but it really wasn't. I can see why he only wrote 13 of these and like seventy 87th precinct series (that's an estimate of course) "

    " Good solid McBain read. This is my first of the Matthew Hope series. A little more character development, but very similar to the precinct novels. "
