Summary

A wannabe private eye with a love of film noir and detective fiction.
A rich, attractive femme fatale.
A missing husband.
A rollicking ride to a dark and daring ending.
Reed Ferguson's first case is a daring adventure, complete with a dose of film noir, and a lot of humor. With a great supporting cast of the Goofball Brothers, Reed's not too bright neighbors, and Cal, Reed's computer geek friend, This Doesn't Happen in the Movies is detective noir at its best. Follow Reed as he solves crime akin to his cinematic hero, Humphrey Bogart.

Entertaining book

Would you listen to This Doesn't Happen in the Movies again? Why?

I enjoyed the story very much, but I generally don't listen to books more than once.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot was very good. The story flowed so well that I was not in a hurry to know exactly what was going on.

What does Johnny Peppers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mr. Peppers has a great voice and he added accents and pitches which added value to the characters.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

There's only one take in reel life.

Fun Retro Mystery

Very enjoyable listen; light, and entertaining, and just enough mystery to keep you listening. I could almost see Humphrey Bogart in my mind's eye. :)
