1939 HOLLYWOOD--THE LAND OF DREAMS FOR MANY, A PLACE OF NIGHTMARES FOR SOME.
One hundred young women, seeking the elusive stardom of the silver screen, have come up missing without a trace. With Hitler and Tojo running rampant across the globe, and with the world falling apart around them, it will be up to the men and women of the Sunset Detective Agency and investigator, Samuel Dalhart, to come up with the answers to the most complex series of disappearances ever to hit the glittered sidewalks of Los Angeles. Coming to the defense of a Hollywood legend centered in the sights of not only the L.A. Police Department, but J. Edgar Hoover himself, Dalhart and his band of investigators must clear the greatest star of the century, Charlie Chaplin, against the assault of law enforcement looking for someone to blame, and the "Little Tramp" is their target.
With a huge cast of Hollywood legends rivaling any movie script, the trail that is followed leads to the inescapable conclusion that something has arrived in Los Angeles and a most evil and ancient legend has come with it. With cameos from the most achieved actors of their time, the stars themselves become embroiled in an unbelievable reality that has escaped the very pages of Universal Studio's most famous horror movies. The die has been cast and the Sunset Detective Agency will be plunged into a battle against a blackness that has found sanctuary in the most brightly lit corner of the globe--Hollywood. The beast has escaped the insanity of Europe and is now stalking its new prey, an easy hunt of the young women who only wished to find fame and fortune in the movie capital of the world.
The dark nights are closing in and the brightest lights of the city cannot keep this ancient legend at bay, and the hunt for this beast will set up the greatest battle of Good vs. Evil ever conceived in the place known for its glitz and glamor--Tinseltown.
The monster of filmland is here and he is very hungry.
