"I had an unseen file: an autopsy report for a Hollywood screenwriter, which alleged murder.
I was an unemployed PhD graduate and failed comedian, living in a flooded house with two small children and my ex-wife.
So it seemed rational to find conclusive proof that this man had been murdered in a staged road accident by hit-men from the US government.
I left my home in rural England with a cameraman in tow to retrace the screenwriter's final moments in California.
If this death was really an assassination, I was in increasing danger. But if it was just a stupid accident...God...don't let it be that."
Set against a political backdrop marked by war, sex, and blackmail, The Writer with No Hands unveils the never-told true story of Hollywood's forgotten rebel and Dr. Alford's search for the brutal truth in a world where everyone lies for a living.
Throughout 2016, the author read the entire book in-costume on stage at nightclubs, bars, and busking pitches. The resultant product is presented here as "live" with special thanks owed to The Red Boot Band, Deaf Boy One, The Rec House, Seb Guettier, and The Nest.

Hampered by Bad Sound Quality
Great, compelling story. Most of the chapters sound like they were read at a live event but change sound quality between chapters as if there was a different microphone / room set-up. The last chapter sounds like it was read alone. The gaffes and laughs are left in as is the highly annoying sniffing that our author does during the last chapter. It could have all used a good trim.
Fortunately, the story is highly entertaining so it's an overall recommend though a more professional job would have been appreciated.
