The Bloom of Hollywood

Los Angeles, CA, 1948. A young starlet is found murdered in her own home. The LAPD has a strong lead and a likely suspect, but the girl’s mother wants no stone left unturned. Are the police correct in pursuing a gangster, known for harassing actresses and not taking no for an answer? Should they look closer at her hot-blooded matinee-idol ex-boyfriend? Or even the rising Los Angeles District Attorney who nearly lost his job and marriage after his affair with the starlet went public?

Study the clues. Send out your team. Solve the case.


The William Knight Detective Agency has been retained to solve the crime.

William Knight, P.I.

Lead Investigator, former LAPD

Naomi Poe

Assistant, social butterfly, con-woman

Bev Parker
