A MAJOR PRODUCTION!
a Mystery-Thriller-with-Humor Featuring Barney Moon, P.I. By Thomas B. Sawyer Manhattan P.I. Barney Moon doesn’t drive, and is stuck once again on the to-him alien planet known as Los Angeles. To Barney’s relief, it’s only one or two nights in Nutsville, a total no-brainer quickie. A simple fraud matter. Except – wouldn’tcha know? Barney quickly finds himself in the middle of several serious, whacko, very dangerous cases of WEBIT? (Where Else But In Tinseltown?). In A MAJOR PRODUCTION!, New York Private-eye Barney Moon’s latest reluctant-but-thankfully-very brief journey to his least-favorite city in the World quickly becomes complicated – and terrifyingly, uniquely extended. For starters, there’s the pair of massively, desperately bored Homeland Security Agents who see a way out via Hollywood Success (almost their only areas of agreement), plus a crooked talent agent, an obsessed/ambitious ADA, an ineptly-planned, fake-terrorist plot – based on a stolen screenplay – to attack Los Angeles, harried LAPD Homicide Detectives, their already overflowing plates made maddeningly worse by Barney’s latest intrusion(s) onto their turf – until he unexpectedly and weirdly makes them look like heroes, the murder on Sunset Boulevard of a mob boss’s actress-wife, wannabes with outsized Movieland Dreams – and for Barney, a ticking clock – its deadline: his life. With smart, gorgeous Melodie Seaver at the wheel – and on his case – Barney Moon, with his customary wit, tenacity, ingenuity, and hilarious attitudes about-and-reactions-to LA, manages to clean up all of it – in ways not possible or even thinkable anywhere else – barely in time to rescue himself from execution by the mob – before making his narrow escape back to Civilization (aka New York City).
