Publisher's Summary

Hoagy tries to save a client from the deadly world of high-stakes publishing
Stewart Hoag knows how quickly fame can fade. The same critics who adored his first novel used his second for target practice, ending his literary career once and for all. To keep his basset hound fed, Hoagy ghostwrites memoirs for the rich, famous, and self-destructive. His newest subject reminds him all too much of himself.
By the age of twenty, Cam Noyes is already being hailed as the next F. Scott Fitzgerald. Though he’s only published one book, Cam runs with the big boys: dating artists, trashing restaurants, and ending every night in a haze of tequila and cocaine. So glamorous is his lifestyle that he’s having trouble starting his second novel, forcing his agent to hire Hoagy to get the little genius working on a memoir instead. As Hoagy digs into the kid’s life story, he learns that New York publishing is even more cutthroat than he thought.

Great Story, Meh Narration

I loved the story, but the narrator was a bit lacking in emotion, especially during the very emotional scenes.

Charming detective!

This is my first read of one of David Handler's Stewart Hoag mysteries. Enjoyed it. Funny, unusual detective (day job is ghost writer), and light murder mystery story. Narrator Sean Runnette was excellent!
