Product description


"Interesting characters abound, and the writing style is fascinating, almost script style, but reined in enough to be called a novel with lots of dialogue. In this blackest of screwball comedies, Gould gives new meaning to the idea of Hollywood backstabbing." --Booklist

"Author/screenwriter Gould (Cocktail; Fort Apache, The Bronx) casts a jaundiced eye on Hollywood in this madcap first in a series.... Filled with an insider's knowledge of the backstabbing, cutthroat, libidinous one-upmanship of the film industry, this book will appeal to those with a taste for slapstick humor and cartoonish characters." --Publishers Weekly

"This series debut from novelist (The Serial Killer's Daughter; Double Bang) and screenwriter (Cocktail; Streets of Gold) Gould ... will keep readers turning the pages. A story that reaches far beyond the last page and will leave readers wanting the next book. A nice pick for patrons who like their sleuths and procedurals on the unconventional side." --Library Journal (starred review)

"Here's a police procedural that will make you laugh out loud. As always, Gould...creates incredibly memorable and distinctive characters. Heywood is one of the smartest guys I know and an incredible observer. I'm looking forward to the next thing that comes out of this man's mind." - Killer Nashville Book of the Day

"Green Light for Murder is offbeat and inventive. It is also hysterically funny--a sort of literary burlesque whose dialogue packs wallop after wallop. Let's hope Veasy and his roach clip return soon." - Chapter 16 blog
