Cast the First Stone by James W. Ziskin- Feature and Review


ABOUT THE BOOK:

February 1962: Tony Eberle has just scored his first role in a Hollywood movie, and the publisher of his hometown newspaper in upstate New York wants a profile of the local boy who’s made good. Reporter Ellie Stone is dispatched to Los Angeles for the story. But when she arrives on set to meet her subject, Tony has vanished. His agent is stumped, the director is apoplectic, and the producer is dead.

Ellie is on the story, diving headfirst into a treacherous demimonde of Hollywood wannabes, beautiful young men, desperately ambitious ingĂ©nues, panderers, and pornography hobbyists. Then there are some real movie stars with reputations to protect. To find the killer, Ellie must separate the lies from the truth, unearthing secrets no one wants revealed along the way. But before she can solve Bertram Wallis’s murder, she must locate Tony Eberle.

MY REVIEW:


Cast the First Stone (Ellie Stone Mystery #5)Cast the First Stone by James W. Ziskin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cast the First Stone by James W. Ziskin is a 2017 Seventh Street Books publication.

“But I knew my reputation at the ‘New Holland Press’ was only as strong as my most recent day of work. That was the price I paid for wearing a skirt in a man’s job.”

This is an exceptional mystery series, which can be read as a stand alone, or read in any order you wish. But, I do highly recommend every single book in this award winning series.

I binge read the series, in order, and found it enhanced my enjoyment of it and solidified my understanding of Ellie Stone. My only complaint is that now I will have to wait a while for the release of the sixth installment.

I recommend this one to all mystery lovers, but especially for historical mystery fans.
