ABOUT THE BOOK
Private Investigator Dirk Slade is looking for the killer of his best friend, as well as a missing teenager who just happens to be the son of Dracula. Along the way he encounters the Wolfman, Frankensteins monster (plus his former bride), Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Leech Woman, the Invisible Man, Wasp Woman, and a host of other old horror movie characters. Thats because Bruce Goldens Monster Town is set in an early sixties ghetto of Hollywood, wherenow that theyre no longer in voguethe monsters of black and white horror films have taken up residence. In this existence, monsters played themselves in the movies. THEY were the actors. Now most of them are just regular folk, with regular jobs.
Slades investigation leads not only to a number of murders, but a political cover-up and threat to the well-being of every citizen of Monster Town.
This satire on old film noir and hard-boiled detective stories plays its mysterious plot straight, despite the bountiful list of quirky characters and its sardonic narration. Goldens Monster Town is unlike any book youve ever heard of, never mind visited.
