Sizzling Cold Case
Sizzling Cold Case is a Barnaby Jones murder mystery written by Buddy Ebsen, who portrayed L.A. sleuth Barnaby Jones in the long-running TV series of the same name. Beautiful starlet Lori London died suddenly some eighteen years ago. Though her death was ruled a suicide, neither Barnaby nor Hollywood believed that was the end of the story, and Barnaby would not let the cold case stay closed. When another rising star (a dead ringer for Lori) is cast in the movie version of London’s demise with a new, “surprise” ending, on-set accidents, death threats, and burned film canisters make it clear someone doesn’t want the truth to be told. In his search for clues, Barnaby discovers a connection between the murderer of Lori London and the man who murdered his own son in cold blood, and must confront his son’s killer once more. The story comes to a thrilling conclusion at the Hollywood premiere of "The True Story behind the Legend of Lori London."
