Scott Elliott

Created by Terence Faherty (1954 --)

Another of the growing breed of retro eyes, SCOTT ELLIOTT works the tried-and-true private eye turf of 1940s Hollywood.

A former bit-player (a nice word for failed actor) Scott now works for the Hollywood Security Agency, where he tries to keep the nasty little secrets of movie star clients out of the scandal rags. In his impressive debut, 1996's Kill Me Again, Scott tangles with the House on Un-American Activities Committee when a screenwriter is accused of being a Communist. And then the writer is found murdered. With its finely-detailed settings and attention to period detail this series should appeal to movie buffs and private eye fans alike.

Faherty is also the creator of ex-seminarian turned private eye Owen Keane.
