      The Case of the Angry Actress (written by E V Cunningham)

      When I first saw the title, I thought it similar to the books by Erle Stanley Gardner, whose Perry Mason series started with ‘The Case of the.,…’ This was however a different series indeed, with a Nisei protagonist.

      The case involved a group of the rich and


      famous in the Beverly Hills, people who were players in the megabucks industry of movies production and making of film stars. A past indiscretion had now returned to hound them. They had cruelly used and abused a young girl, Samantha, whom they had seduced with empty promises of fame and riches. Since then, Samantha has ...

      • disappeared. However she has vowed vengeance and now the perpetrators seemed to be dying off one by one. These men had married beautiful wives – each man now worried if his wife had been Samantha.

        A rather refreshing idea of using a Nisei protagonist, Masao Masuto was of course different from the leading

        characters of other detective stories. He was of course a charmer with the ladies, but retained beliefs and values from his Japanese background. The author, Howard Fast (writing under the pseudonym) was ahead of his time in creating such a character that employed instincts and intuition in solving his crimes – in fact these methods were unconventional in those days.

    Sometimes we see a title of a book and it may seem similar i do get it.`The Case of the Angry Actress” really made me think and due to the review allowed me to feel the emotions of the character and the plot of the story.
