"A fun, fast read that is fully engaging.
The multiple story lines and deeply flawed characters will keep the reader
invested. Some of the content is for a mature audience, but this should not
deter a worthy library purchase. For fans of Brubaker and Phillips, film noir,
and Golden Age Hollywood stories." - Library Journal
Brubaker and Phillips' newest hit series, The
Fade Out, is an epic noir set in the world of noir itself, the backlots and
bars of Hollywood at the end of its Golden Era. A movie stuck in endless
reshoots, a writer damaged from the war and lost in the bottle, a dead movie
star and the lookalike hired to replace her. Nothing is what it seems in the
place where only lies are true. The Fade Out is Brubaker and Phillips'
most ambitious project yet!
