In 1992 James Flynn lands a bottom-rung job at Commodore
Pictures, a notorious grindhouse studio that launched the careers of countless
Hollywood legends in the 60s and the 70s. A chemically-enhanced epiphany during
the riots convinces Flynn that success depends on befriending Gordon Luker,
Commodore's visionary founder and industry rebel, who has reportedly gone
insane and become a virtual recluse. Flynn's quest for Luker leads him through
an increasingly surreal landscape filled with natural disasters, an historic
murder trial, several relationships, and a host of unforgettable characters
ranging from the super-famous to society's outcasts. As Flynn closes in on
Luker, he begins to understand what really called him West in the first place.


written the screenplays for numerous B-movies and action films. Play it Straight is his first novel.
