Private Investigator J. Parker Wrighte is hired by Monolith Studios to look into the suicide of one of their major stars, Pepper O’Dell. He discovers from talking to her co-star, Jack B. Nimbeau, that Pepper was not the sweet and innocent girl next she played on the screen. Parker also meets the seductive screen star Domino Mueller and drives with her to a clinic run by Dr. Rome. Features special pencil art and thumbnail gallery. Fans of crime and mystery fiction will love Retrowood: All Roads Lead To Rome.
The environment is faux Depression era Hollywood, complete with snarling gangsters in snappy suits, the untouchable wealthy , corruptible starlets in sleek revealing gowns, and elegantly designed automobiles set against the poverty and despair of the average joe. And in the middle of all this a world of celluloid dreams is being created. Private detective J. Parker Wrighte, is on an upwardly mobile career path from his lowly dust bowl beginnings, but finding that every advancement comes with cost and compromise. Working for the Kinchay Agency, Parker is investigating a case for Louis Orwell, one of the most powerful men in Retrowood; but at every turn he is continually dragged back into contact with his past, beginning with the murder of his best friend from childhood, Henry Irving. Drunken priests, sadistic nuns, nymphomaniacal wives, with basketball and gambling thrown in…. How can you go wrong with that?
