30 pages in, I had the strong urge to fling this sorry excuse for a book out of the window. How it reached NY times top bookshelf is beyond me. Klaven needs to find a substitute for "said".

If you haven't read it yet, tackle The Cutting Room: A Novel of Suspense first, as characters and events from that one play a part here. Honestly, this sequel was a bit weaker for me as the plot went all over the place, and certain events required suspension of disbelief - for example, Roy gets himself into a multi-car accident driving without a license, yet is able to walk away without any charges filed, nor lengthy paperwork (statements) involved.

The Shooting Script is a light, quirky mystery about a film trivia expert, Roy Milano, who's hot on the trial of the unreleased Jerry Lewis film, The Day the Clown Died. Unfortunately for Roy, he's not the only one searching, and when the elderly man who owns the only known copy dies, the race is on.

More of a romp than a serious mystery, ...more
