Summary, etc.:
Film detective Valentino is summoned to the estate of Ignacio Bozel to collect a prized donation to UCLA's movie library: Bleak Street, a film from the classic noir period, thought lost for more than sixty years. Bleak Street was never released. Its star, Van Oliver, a gifted and charismatic actor with alleged ties to the mob, disappeared while the project was in post-production, presumably murdered by gangland rivals--another one of Hollywood's unsolved mysteries. Studio bosses elected to shelve the film rather than risk box-office failure. Now, the university's PR Department is excited about the acquisition, but only if Valentino can find a way to sell it in the mainstream media by way of a sensational discovery to coincide with its release: "We want to know what happened to Oliver." With that, a simple quest for a few unmarked film cans opens a portal into a place darker than night.-- Publisher description.
