Kieran O'Connor Series
Tight Shot: A Hollywood Mystery (1995) --
a 1996 Edgar Award nominee
"I thought it would be interesting to update the tradition of the imperfect
detective by creating a sleuth who was a twenty something slacker (hey, it was
the mid-’90s), and that’s where I came up with Kieran O’Connor—an ambivalent
entertainment reporter, stuck in a not-terribly-satisfying relationship with a
not-terribly-satisfied woman." -- Kevin Allman, from his website
Hot Shot (1998)
"Kieran, broke as usual, takes a job writing the memoirs of a former
Hollywood call girl. She ends up dead, of course, and in solving the mystery,
he gets involved with a cast of filmtown fringe figures that includes a
prostitute to the stars; a vicious tabloid photographer known as the “Nazi
Paparazzi”; and an agent who represents only notorious people."
-- Kevin Allman, from his
