Toby Peter, the Hollywood gumshoe and sleuth to the stars, now has Cary Grant on his books! Together they follow a trail of clues in this great nostalgic yarn.

To Catch a Spy Synopsis

A brilliantly entertaining tinsel-town adventure for private eye Toby Peters. From the acclaimed Edgar-winning author.


Hollywood gumshoe Toby Peters - who has played sleuth to such movie luminaries as Humphrey Bogart, the Marx Brothers, Bette Davis, Mae West and Charlie Chaplin - now finds himself working for Cary Grant.

The assignment seems simple enough - Grant merely wants Toby to deliver a package and pick up an envelope in the middle of the night. But at the critical moment of the exchange, a shot rings out and Toby finds himself with a corpse on his hands, a lump on his head, grass in his mouth and a dying man's words on his mind.

Now in pursuit of a murderer, Toby and Cary Grant follow a trail of clues that leads them to a second dead body, a nest of Nazi sympathisers, and finally to a night-time confrontation with a determined and well-armed killer on the grounds of an estate at the edge of Laurel Canyon.

 

To Catch a Spy Press Reviews

'Kaminsky's Toby Peters series, in which the ne'er do well detective interacts with the Hollywood of the late 1930s and 40s, is full of entertaining profiles and snappy patter. The period settings are reflected accurately, and the regular characters tend to reinforce Toby's own comic malaise... it's the kind of series which breeds affectionate fans, of which I am decidely one.'
