Bloodthirsty by Marshall Karp

Barry Gerber is one of the most powerful - and hated - men in Hollywood. Turning up dead in a garbage can brings him under the eyes of Detectives Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs and his wasn't a pretty way to go. Just two days later another despised actor bad-boy is found murdered in the same sadistic manner.

Now, Lomax and Biggs know that there's no business like show business, but that was before the A-Listers were getting killed off like extras. Wading through a list of suspects as long as the credits of the latest blockbuster and a number of leads to match, they have to race to prevent another Hollywood hot-shot getting the cut.
