The Gatsby Game – A Romantic-Comedy Mystery
When Fitzgerald-quoting con man Alistair Milborne is found dead a movie star’s motel room in Taft, CA—igniting a world-wide scandal—the small-town police can’t decide if it’s an accident, suicide, or foul play. As evidence of murder emerges, Nicky Conway, the smart-mouth nanny, becomes the prime suspect. She’s the only one who knows what happened. But she also knows nobody will ever believe her.
The story is based on the real mystery surrounding the death of David Whiting, actress Sarah Miles’ business manager, during the filming of the 1973 Burt Reynolds movie, "The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing".
