Valentino: Film Detective
by Loren D. Estleman
Valentino has a perfect job for a film buff - he is a film detective who locates lost movies so that they can be preserved for future generations. And often he has to become an amateur sleuth as well. To locate a fragment of a film long considered to have vanished, Valentino has to jet to remote locations or to find ancient Hollywood producers and bit players. But there can be danger as well: people sometimes are willing to kill to insure that a film stays lost.
Loren D. Estleman has won 17 major awards for his writing, including 4 Shamuses from the Private Eye Writers of America. In addition to his novels and short stories about Valentino, he is the creator to Detroit PI Amos Walker, hitman Peter Macklin, and Deputy U.S. Marshal Page Murdock.
