Murder in Hollywood by Charles Higham
Book DescriptionCharles Higham successfully presents the most plausible and convincing solution yet to the mystery of who killed William Desmond Taylor. In the process he paints a vivid portrait of Hollywood in the 1920s - from its major stars to its bisexual subculture. The result is the answer to a long-standing mystery and a fascinating study of a place, and an industry, that has always let people reinvent themselves. "Murder in Hollywood" is more extraordinary than any crime fiction and as compelling as any suspense film.
