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
