Lights! Camera! Reed!
That's right - Reed Ferguson, the intrepid hero of This Doesn't Happen In The Movies, is back.
A mysterious death.
A brother searching for the truth.
A devious ex-wife.
Real estate shenanigans.
More danger for Reed than a film noir plot.
Reed Ferguson's second adventure is again filled with film noir and a lot of humor. Along with the Goofball Brothers, Reed's not too bright neighbors, and Cal, Reed's computer geek friend, Reed tackles a dangerous case, sharpening his skills as he unearths a string of clues that lead to a killer - but will this case cost Reed his life? With an ode to old Hollywood and movie memorabilia, Reel Estate Rip-off is humorous detective fiction at its best.
Praise for the acclaimed first novel in the Reed Ferguson mystery series, THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN IN THE MOVIES:
Kirkus Reviews on this private investigator series:
The promising kickoff to Pawlish's comic mystery series, starring far-from-perfect PI Reed Ferguson. Pawlish earns high marks for plot construction, with twists and turns naturally unfolding as Ferguson, inexperienced but not incapable, feels his way through the case. A good-humored mystery series worth following.
This is one witty, hilarious private detective story that will keep the reader glued to the pages until the very end.
