It's 1938 and P.I. Toby Peters is watching Atlanta burn in the biggest scene in the biggest movie ever made. When an extra is found lying dead in a ditch, Toby could swear he sees Clark Gable--Rhett Butler himself--watching from the shadows. Now, years later, Gable is receiving anonymous death threats in poetry. And frankly, my dear, why should Toby give a damn? HC: Myster ...more

A Toby Peters Mystery. The conceit here, similar to Max Allan Collins' historical mysteries, is historical people (specifically movie people, particularly Clark Gable) woven into the mystery. The difference, however, is that Collins builds his story around plausible resolutions of unsolved historical mysteries that tangentially involve historical characters, while Kaminsky's Toby Peters stories focus on the historical characters at the center of totally fictional mysteries.

As such Kaminsky has t

What do you get when you put a midget, a former wrestler, an eccentric landlady, a butcherish dentist who fancys himself a lady man, Clark Gable, and our hero, Toby Peters together? The answer is a wonderful private eye novel packed full of 1940's flavor and Hollywood tidbits. In this instance, the 1943 Academy Awards are a background for a mystery involving an incident that occured several years earlier on the set of "Gone With the Wind." At the center of the mystery is a "fruitcake" who appear ...more

It’s usually a dame. Women have traditionally caused all manner of trouble for the Sam Spades of the classic hardboiled PI world. Well, Private Eye Toby Peters has a different source for all his hardships – movie stars. He’s a former Glendale police officer, former security guard at Warner Brother’s studios and now down on his luck PI who always manages to get caught up in Hollywood intrigue of the 1930’s and 40’s. With a reputation for discretion and dogged determination, Peters’ makes an excel

This is my second Toby Peters mystery and, I think, my last. The story purports to touch on the filming of Gone with the Wind and interaction with Clark Gable, and it does, but the touches are too tangential to keep me interested.

Toby Peters is contacted by Clark Gable, who is being threatened and stalked by some crazy person for some mysterious reason. Gable contacts Peters in 1943, when he is at the worst of his depression over the loss of Carole Lombard (a loss from which most say he never t

Not one of his best. And if you were a Gable fan you would be disappointed.

As always Stuart Kaminsky delivers. Toby Peters is hired by Clark Gable to track down and stop the person who is killing extras from Gone With The Wind. All were present when an actor died while filming the movie. The last 2 people on the list are Clark Gable and Toby himself.Toby will need the help of his friends and his brother if he wants to stop the killer in time.Great movie trivia and bits from the time help to make the picture complete. Great addition to the series

Light murder-mystery. Interesting due to author's background in film history. Clark Gable hires a PI to find out who is trying to kill him. He is back in LA on leave during WWII. Lots of movie references to films and stars and locations, fun if you like that stuff. One of a series.

The year is 1938 Hollywood. Clark Gable is in the shadows watching a body being carried from the set of Atlanta burning, cut to 1943. Gable is receiving death notices written in poetry...

Clark Gable and extras from the burning of Atlanta are being stalked by a mysterious killer. Toby Peters solves it all with an unexpected career saver at the end.
