Tinseltown Riff centers on Ben Prine, a thirty-something Hollywood screenwriter who, on a Labor Day weekend, finds himself in desperate straits. Latching on to a dubious last-minute opportunity, he unwittingly embarks on a collision course with a Montana tracker connected with a Vegas mob; an odyssey which culminates in a showdown on an abandoned Western movie set.
I will be honest it took me a really long time to get into this book and it almost made the didn’t finish pile, but hating to give up on a book I persevered and it did get better.
I enjoyed the writing style although at the beginning I really had no idea what the heck was going on as there were too many characters introduced at one time, and I had no idea how they all tied in together and where it was all going, which left me a little frustrated hence my having a hard time getting into the book. This book is filled with quirky eccentric characters all of them down and out looking for a way to drag it all together and make it big in Hollywood, and they all need Ben to pull it together, the only problem is he hasn’t a clue what’s going on until its well into play.
I gave this book a 3 out of 5 star rating
