The Doom List by Gerard O'Donovan

The director loved making movies.  He can tell when he has a good one and that's the one he's working on now.  Then he learns the new head of the department expects perfect behavior from the stars and wants all the movies clean.  If he sees any transgressions he adds them to his "Doom List" and they will be fired...

Severn House and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published June 2nd.

The director hires a private investigator to protect his leading lady from trouble.  The PI finds all kinds of things that he has to watch for.  The newspapers are all looking for dirt.  The cops aren't clean.  And her co-star has lost his lover and wants to find him.

These characters are better at weaving a web than a spider.  The PI keeps following the threads trying to  keep everyone safe.  That's no small feat.

You learn about the old movie world and feel sorry for those who face a loss.  It's a long busy tale that will keep you reading...
