“And we are also in the era of the remake, where a classic such as Mr. Deeds Goes to Town is redone by an ignoramus who is about as funny as a root canal, or a picture that wasn’t all that great to begin with is remade into one that is even worse. What this all boils down to is mindless and soulless pap. . .” From a Letter to the Editor from the DVD killer in the novel, The DVD Murders.
Holy intellectualism! A serial killer who’s a film critic? What gives? Why is the so-called DVD Killer so intent on knocking off the A-list actors of Hollywood? Enter Detective Second Class Frank Callahan, a big, tough, and blue-collar sort of guy who happens to be gay. Follow him and his fellow Irish Catholic sidekick, Barry, as they pursue the elusive DVD killer over the streets of Hollywood, through gay bars and cruising grounds, on a chase around Six Flags Magic Mountain, Forest Lawn, and other L.A. landmarks. Witness Callahan’s about face from a seeker of personal glory to team player, his running battle with a gay-bashing rival detective, the brutish Moose Koehler, and his on-again, off-again romance with his estranged lover, a fascinating character named Car. In the end, it’s good, old-fashioned police work with an assist from Barry’s Aunt Dee, a walking encyclopedia of film lore that leads to the killer’s downfall in an exciting climax reminiscent of Hollywood’s legendary gangster film, White Heat.
