Busted Flush Press is excited to announce the release of The Man Who Died Laughing / The Man Who Lived by Night, the first two mysteries in David Handler s Edgar Award-winning series featuring celebrity ghostwriter Stewart Hoagy Hoag & his faithful basset hound, Lulu. Out of print for almost 20 years, these books are nearly impossible to find, even online or in used bookstores. In The Man Who Died Laughing, Hoagy & Lulu find themselves in Hollywood, where Hoagy is ghosting the memoirs of has-been funnyman Sonny Day. When it becomes apparent that someone wants to kill the book, Hoagy discovers that ghostwriting can be murder. In The Man Who Lived by Night, Hoagy is off to London to dig up the secrets of reclusive bad-boy superstar Tristam 'T. S.' Scarr, formerly of the legendary British rock group Us. T.S. is ready to reveal all, in a book destined to become a controversial best-seller. But then someone intends to send Hoagy to the top of the charts with a bullet. Busted Flush Press will reprint all eight of the Hoagy & Lulu mysteries in a series of four omnibus volumes.
