Book Review: All That Glitters, by Michael Murphy

Dwell in Possibility

All-That-GlittersThere’s nothing subtle about the Jake and Laura Mysteries, but that’s not a bad thing. They’re flashy, full of energy, and totally fun.

After all, they’re set in the 1930s, and All That Glitters is set in Hollywood. And the opening chapter is entitled “The Naughtiest, Bawdiest Year Yet,” which the reporters of the era apparently dubbed 1934.

So at least you know what you’re in for from the opening pages.

Jake and Laura are headed for Hollywood! Which sounds kind of…done…today, but imagine how exciting it was during the 1930s. Broadway star Laura is ready to take on Tinseltown, and her former detective/current novelist boyfriend Jake goes with her. She has a promising script in hand, and Jake reads over it on the train ride there. It’s, indeed promising, but Jake also sees weaknesses. *Sigh* Writers…

One thing Jake and Laura have to contend with — that they don’t…

Book Review: “The Yankee Club” by Michael Murphy

Vic's Media Room

Michael Murphy in his new book, “The Yankee Club book coverThe Yankee Club” Book One in the Jake & Laura Mystery Series published by Alibi brings us into the lives of Jake Donovan & Laura Wilson.

From the back cover:   In Michael Murphy’s action-packed Prohibition-era novel of suspense, a mystery writer returns to the bright lights and dark alleys of New York City—uncovering a criminal conspiracy of terrifying proportions.

In 1933, America is at a crossroads: Prohibition will soon be history, organized crime is rampant, and President Roosevelt promises to combat the Great Depression with a New Deal. In these uncertain times, former-Pinkerton-detective-turned-bestselling-author Jake Donovan is beckoned home to Manhattan.

All That Glitters, by Michael Murphy*****

I wanted to share the first review of the second Jake and Laura mystery, All That Glitters that appeared on this terrific book blog.

Seattle Book Mama

allthatglittersThis was a quick read, and a fun one. Don’t be left out in the dark when it hits the shelves in January!

Jake Donovan and Laura Wilson have left the Big Apple in their dust and gone to Hollywood, where Laura is about to enter a new phase of her career with a lead role in one of the new talking pictures. All That Glitters, the new episode of Michael Murphy’s Jake and Laura series, a cozy mystery  if ever there was one, is full of Depression-era flavor, complete with celebrities from the time and place in which is it set. The writing is tight and sassy. Murphy has penned a winner! My thanks go to Net Galley and Alibi Publishers for the ARC.

Jake has promised Laura that his risky gumshoe days are over; he is a novelist now, a new leaf turned over for the woman he…
