Roy Milano is no Sam Spade. But when this divorced movie geek stumbles onto the trail of Orson Welles' long-lost masterpiece, The Magnificent Ambersons, he can't help but take the case. The usual suspects prove to be anything but - a bodybuilding film fanatic obsessed with bizarre rumors about an A-list actress; a rotund reporter who holds Hollywood in thrall via Internet dispatches from his parents' basement; and a starstruck street punk with a thousand voices. And then there's the transatlantic love triangle that finds Roy caught between his very own Gal Friday and a sultry Spanish siren with a stunning secret. But when the bodies start falling, Roy must cut to the chase in his quest to save the Holy Grail of cinema before everything fades to black.

    " Rambling, somewhat slight plot saved by good narration - recommended over print version (which I doubt I would've finished). "

    " This book felt very dated. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Simay | 3/2/2012

    " The suspense of it picked up rather quickly, which would have made it an easy read if the author didn't use dashes in almost every single sentence. And I wasn't too crazy about the ending. "

About the Author

Susan Kim & Laurence Klavan cowrote the graphic novels City of Spies and Brain Camp.

Susan is also a five-time Emmy nominee for her work in children's television and a Writers Guild Award winner for best documentary. She wrote the stage adaptation of Amy Tan's The Joy Luck Club, teaches writing at Goddard College, and is a blogger for the Huffington Post. When she was growing up, her family moved a lot, and the combination of being a) shy, b) the constant new kid, and c) the only Asian meant she was often picked on. In Guardians, she explores her thoughts and feelings about not just bullies but how others deal with them . . . and learn to stand up for themselves.

Laurence has also written the novels The Cutting Room, The Shooting Script, and the Edgar Award-winning Mrs. White and a short-story collection, The Family Unit and Other Fantasies. He received two Drama Desk nominations for the book and lyrics to Bed and Sofa, a musical produced by New York's Vineyard Theatre. Laurence was the baby in his family, the youngest of four brothers; even his twin brother was two minutes older. He learned that having little expected of you can be a source of power. So does Esther in Guardians: she has to finally accept being a leader of people before it's too late. She is sixteen, after all.
