MONDAY PICK | Clive Rosengren debuts his “Murder Unscripted”


Clive Rosengren, a retired Hollywood actor, followed a simliar path that his protagonist Eddie Collins does in his debut novel Murder Unscripted for 18 years of his career (except, hopefully, the part about murder). The victim in the novel is Eddie’s ex-wife, a higher-scale actress; you can read chapter one for a feel of the book and plot. Booklist calls it “luscious” and Carl Bookins says it’s a “short, fast read, well plotted and intrinsically solid.” Rosengren will be reading from Murder Unscripted at Once Upon a Crime on Monday, April 30.
