BOOK REVIEW

DEATH BY HOLLYWOOD - STEVEN BOCHCO

Bobby Newman isn't having much luck.  He's been drinking too much lately, his wife is having an affair and he just can't come up with an idea for his next screenplay. 

One night Bobby looked through his telescope and saw a couple in a compromising position.  He noticed that they began to argue.  He recognized the woman.  She picks up a trophy and kills her lover. 

Instead of reporting this crime to the police, Bobby realized that this would make the perfect screenplay that he has been having such a hard time trying to write.  To get more information for his screenplay, Bobby becomes close to the woman who murdered her lover and also gets involved with the detective investigating the case.

Where does this all lead for Bobby? 

Steven Bochco is the co-creator of Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law and NYPD Blue.  He has done an excellent job with this book.  We couldn't ask for a better plot.  You can almost see the characters come to life.  You feel like you are right there in Hollywood.  There is suspense and humor in the story.  This book is a real page-turner so plan on reading it when you have some free time because you won't want to put it down!
