For L.A.’s most uncertain private investigator (and old movie buff) Dave Beauchamp, attending the Hollywood Celebrity Expo should have been Heaven. But it wasn’t, particularly when the show’s stars started turning up dead in highly unusual and personal ways. Before long, Dave finds himself struggling to make sense out of a bizarre case that appears rooted in an unsolved string of murders from the 1980s. Both grippingly suspenseful and laugh-out-loud funny, Dead and In Person! demonstrates that in the real La-La-Land, vintage Hollywood and vintage secrets can sometimes go hand-in-hand in disturbing and deadly ways.
