Manifesto for the Dead


The publication of The Last Days of II Duce brought new fans to Stansberry and his mastery of classic noir. Now Stansberry turns to the seamy streets of Los Angeles in 1971. Aging pulp novelist Jim Thompson is drinking away the end of his days in Hollywood bars. Then, hired to write a script about a low-life hired to kill a film exec's girlfriend, Thompson finds that his life begins to imitate his art as the producer plans to live the plot and leave Jim to take the fall. This is top-notch noir blended with biography, fiction, suspense, and satire. Hide synopsis
