THRILLING HOLLYWOOD NOIR WITH A HORRIFIC WEB OF INTRIGUE & SUSPENSE (ARTISAN BOOK REVIEWS)

MACGUFFIN by Roy C. Booth and John F. Mollard is a compelling thrilling novel that transports the reader to 2005 Hollywood. MacGuffin, an aspiring actor with a talent for acting but a distinct lack of tinsel town looks, struggles to find work that will lead him on the road to stardom. With unexpected twists and turns, intriguing characters and a great plot, MACGUFFIN is, without doubt, a must-read 5-star novel.

When a series of murders takes place by an apparent serial killer, and one of those victims is the star in a movie in the process of being shot, MacGuffin comes up with a unique idea that will land him the starring role. Finally, he gets his chance to show his acting ability, and he shines. But the killer is still on the prowl and seeking revenge against those from his past. MacGuffin unwittingly becomes involved with the LAPD and FBI as they hunt the killer and the bodies stack up.

This is a whirlwind of a novel that will have you rooting for MacGuffin and the group of law enforcers and despising the killer and his little band of renegades. The authors, Roy C. Booth and John F, Mollard have created some great characters that stir all the negative and positive emotions in the reader. The Hollywood world at its worst is revealed, where egos and arrogance abound and actors with real talent but no looks will never make it. MacGuffin is the perfect epitome of the latter, yet the clever storyline keeps the reader wondering, and an exciting finale will leave you quite breathless.

Well written, authentic language, good plot locations, and a little ripple of humor will keep you engrossed to the last page. MacGuffin is a character that shines and will suit a follow-up novel or even a great series. A great story with an ending to surprise, this is a very expressive visual book that paints the scenes in the mind as they unfold. Sit back and prepare for the ride. MACGUFFIN by John F. Mollard & Roy C. Booth comes highly recommended by Artisan Book Reviews.

In Cities and Towns Across the Country

MARCH AGAINST DEATH, LIES, and FASCISM, AND FOR HUMANITY!
TRUMP/PENCE OUT NOW!

SEATTLE:
Join Refuse Fascism Seattle and Veterans for Peace Seattle for a Single-File March, 6 ft apart, through the hospital district of First Hill, followed by a vigil at the Federal Building. Wear black funeral clothes.

We need at least 200 volunteers to hold "tombstone" signs with the accumulating death toll at intervals of 1K. Please RSVP so we know we can count on you.
s
Calling all healthcare heroes, teachers, people experiencing loss of loved ones, and all those with a heart for humanity. Tell your story, stand for those no longer here, demand Trump/Pence Out Now.

* Wear a mask
* Air Quality Alert: Event will be cancelled if air quality is unhealthy.

Trump deliberately deceived the world about the danger of the virus at the cost of tens of thousands of lives. Bob Woodward got it on tape! Now, Trump continues to lie, assail science, traffic in conspiracy theories, hold super-spreading rallies, and sabotage attempts to contain the pandemic. Many of those lost – disproportionately Latinx, Black and Native American – Trump would have gladly killed off anyway.

This is Trump’s genocidal, fascist worldview. Will it be yours?

In word and deed, each of us must show where we stand.

On September 21, mark the grim milestone of 200,000 Covid-19 deaths with the resounding demand for an end to the death, lies, and fascist escalation: TRUMP/PENCE OUT NOW!

The science-hating response to COVID-19 is but one leading edge of an entire program of hatred, bigotry, and cruelty directed at the masses of people. The different strands of this fascist program – the white supremacy, the misogyny, the xenophobia, wrapped in the flag and the Bible taken literally – are consolidating into a different form of rule in this country, relying on violence, terror, and brutality.

Waiting for or relying on the upcoming election alone – an election Trump is already sabotaging and refusing to be bound by – to remove this regime is not just irresponsible. It is complicity.

We must rise now, as millions did earlier this year for Black lives, uniting and preparing to struggle with all we’ve got to oust this fascist regime and bring its program to a halt. Our actions must lead into an October of people from many different backgrounds and viewpoints coming together week after week, day after day, in growing continuing nonviolent protests that do not stop until this demand is met:

TRUMP/PENCE OUT NOW!
In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!

REVIEWS:

“Very enjoyable book. Moved along at a steady pace so you didn't get bored. Characters were all macho, including the women which was nice. The Hollywood history was an extra bonus because I like a book I learn something from. Good job John and Roy. Hope to read more from you in the future.”

“Great book! The story kept me entertained and wanting to know what was next throughout the whole book. I really liked that the story line was not predictable-a lot of exciting surprises with the characters.”
