Here is a small preview of my latest book from NBM, “Famous Players: The Mysterious Death of William Desmond Taylor.”  It’s the convoluted tale of a still-unsolved 1922 murder in Hollywood, involving several film stars and other “famous players” of the day.  The two finished pages reproduced here recount the discovery of the body, always […]

“The concise narrative incorporates diverse threads and is packed with details that will mesmerize readers—Lincoln’s prophetic dream of his own death, John Wilkes Booth’s careful and cold-blooded preparations, the identification of the perpetrator’s body after his death by the initials he had carved into his right hand as a child.
