In Marshall Karp?s Bloodthirsty, two L.A. detectives are set to meet with an A-list a–hole Hollywood producer about turning their last big case (i.e., Karp’s last novel, The Rabbit Factory) into a movie. But the producer’s found stuffed in a trash can drained of all his blood. That’s showbiz.
A morgue attendant moonlights as a screenwriter.
With its har-har banter and well-paced, undemanding plot, Karp’s Tinseltown kiss-off reads like a solid Hollywood buddy-cop thriller. B
