      The year is 1940, and Los Angeles-based private eye Toby Peters has been called before the real-life Wizard of Oz himself: Louis B. Mayer, legendary studio head of Metro-Goldwyn Mayer. His job: to track down a murderer stalking the back lots of one of Hollywood¹s most powerful movie companies.

    Peters sets to work, plumbing the depths of a world of dreamers, child stars, and half-sized philosophers, helped by none other than Clark Gable, Raymond Chandler, and Judy Garland. It¹s a treacherous trail of clues that Peters must follow‹one as winding as the Yellow Brick Road, and deadlier than a field of poppies.

    But does Toby Peters possess enough brains, heart, and courage to solve this bizarre case before he becomes the latest victim of Hollywood¹s new Wicked Witch of the West . . . ?
