Some Like It Hot-Buttered by Jeffrey Cohen is the first book in the “Double Feature” cozy mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime (Penguin), October 2007
Elliot Freed, a recovering writer and husband, socked all his savings-and the alimony from his ex-wife-into the Comedy Tonight movie theater, never suspecting it would become a crime scene…
Poisoned popcorn killed the dead guy in Row S, Seat 18, and to the chagrin of the local police, Elliot starts his own investigation, one that may put the theater-and Elliot-on the cutting room floor.
Elliot Freed, an ex-writer turned theater owner who lives off the alimony that his wife pays him, has a dead body in his theater during the showing of Young Frankenstein. His teenaged projectionist has run away and is a suspect in the murder. Elliot doesn’t believe it and goes about solving this case. This was an okay read. [2 stars – it was okay]
