A PRESS JUNKET BECOMES A CELEBRITY-FILLED TRAIN RIDE TO DEATH!
"Breezy and entertaining." -Henry's Western Round-Up
In the newest installment of the Hollywood Cowboy Detectives series, writer Darryle Purcell's homage to the B-movie westerns and movie serials of yore, Curly Woods, Hoot Gibson and Ken Maynard join forces with action star "Crash" Corrigan, plus radio Mercury Theatre stars Orson Welles and Ray Collins. Together the team pool their unique talents to entertain children, battle Nazi zombies, and uncover the identity of a diabolical assassin, while fighting their mutual desire to strangle each other – on a wild Hollywood junket aboard a celebrity and danger filled bus from southern California to the Golden Gate. Their fellow passengers include a roster of other actors and actresses, a radio announcer, a mute sound- effects specialist, a photographer, G-men, plus a talentless reporter and a psychic (who are both killed by the bites of a king cobra). The action begins when fascist saboteurs place bounties on the heads of Curly, Hoot and Ken. From there the story hurtles pell-mell to San Francisco – or bust! And in a story within the story, the author tips his hat to one of the great old-time radio program, The Shadow, which Welles starred in during the mid-1930s.
