VALENTINO

It's about Valentino, but not the one you think. This one's a film detective for UCLA who inadvertently becomes an amateur sleuth. He was created by Loren D. Estleman and, until now, was seen only in the short story series published exclusively by Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine. Those story titles are listed below.

Estleman contracted with Forge Books to publish
a series of novels about Valentino's adventures.
The 3rd novel, Alive, forthcoming
Alone, published December 8, 2009
Frames, published April 2008
 

Where is Estleman, anyway?

Typically, he's at his
1950 manual typewriter
working on the next novel.
Otherwise, look for him at events listed here:
