My friend Rosey had the great idea to annotate a copy of Hollywood Homicide for a giveaway. I thought I’d take it one step further and share some insights in a blog post as well. (And I’m not just doing this because my handwriting is atrocious!)

Here’s some “insider info” on chapters 6 – 10. You can find the first five chapters here: https://kellyegarrett.com/2017/08/09/...,
