I reread Murder Unscripted for my book club and liked it even better this time The story murdered actress whose ex husband splits his time between acting and being a private eye was interesting though it was maybe a bit too easy to guess the ending Rosengren s writing is brisk and somewhat nourish and the insights into the film industry and acting profession gave the book a bit extra.

I listened to the audio version read by the author on a recent road trip I thoroughly enjoyed it Rosengren is also an actor, so he had a lot of insight into the movie industry Mostly, I loved it because it sounded very noir, but took place in current day Hollywood Well read Lots of fun.
