Publisher's Summary

All he wanted was another nice part in a hit TV show....
Instead, he got a murder accusation, a road trip, and a crazy fan-girl....
Johnny Fontana was a handsome 21-year-old actor on top of the world - starring in his own TV show as the brilliant Detective Frank Morelli...until the network canceled the series. After not landing a new part in 10 years, he finds himself working in the construction industry, remodeling houses. Even this is bearable until his old co-star, Lawrence Everett (who is now one of the biggest names at the box office) shows up out of nowhere and brags to Johnny about all the things he is missing out on. Just when everything seems to be settling down into a normal routine again, the worst happens: Lawrence Everett is found murdered, and Johnny becomes the prime suspect.
Enter a beautiful, though overly-enthusiastic, fan of Johnny's old TV show, add a road trip through California to gather clues, and you have a delightful romp of murder, mystery, and hilarity as Johnny tries to figure out what really matters in life.

So much fun to listed to!!!

I have not had that much fun listening to a book in a long time! I lost count of how many times I laughed out loud. My family probably thought I was crazy! Lol

The main characters are awesome, specially Alice! She is so crazy at times that I have no idea how Johnny could put up with her! There are some twists and turns and I did not see where the story was going, but the conclusion is much better than I expected it!

The narrator did a great job bringing the story to life! In this book, you will find lots of humor, mystery, suspense, drama, twists, and a touch of romance as well.

I'm really looking forward to reading another book written by this talented author.

Great fun!

What fun! Apparently ditzy blonde with a motor mouth works hard to push dodo former actor to take lessons from the character he had been famous for and work at solving the murder he is accused of. As she pokes and prods him to visit one possible suspect after another there is escalating situational humor and comedy. Lots of plot twists and red herrings, and even romance. Publisher's blurb will give a few more clues, but it is really worth the read.
Jack Nolan worked hard to come up with voice characteristics for all of the male characters, and really nailed it as Johnny.
