Award-winning writer, producer and director John Wilder marks his novel fiction debut Fall 2015 with the contemporary murder mystery Nobody Dies In Hollywood. Wilder's exceptional abilities to blend criminal intrigue against the rough-and-tumble of the Hollywood scene come as no surprise to his fans. Among the numerous, notable projects Wilder helped create are: James Michener's Centennial (Writers Guild Award, Best Long-Form Drama and Golden Globe nomination)); mini-series Return To Lonesome Dove (Western Writers of America Award and Western Heritage Award); top-rated series Spenser: For Hire; and the number-one rated series The Streets of San Francisco, for which Wilder received a Writers Guild nomination and two Emmy nominations for Best Dramatic Series. Wilder's artful interpretation of dialogue, action and emotion shine in Nobody Dies In Hollywood, featuring private investigator Michael Drayton who has lifelong ties to Hollywood's elite and "e;reflects the multi-ethnic nature of contemporary America,"e; in the author's own words. Drayton is hired by the father of an aspiring actor who was brutally slain alongside a world-renowned movie star in a horrific and seemingly senseless attack. With the son's death tragically overshadowed by the mega-star's fame, Drayton's private mission for justice parallels the official investigation, led by his nemesis and former boss. The duality of emotional turbulence is a running theme and, as the human elements rise and fall, a myriad of characters are introduced, each exuding a modern-day realism that mirrors the dynamic and frenetic scene that epitomizes Hollywood's movie-making industry. Suspense and drama build crisply and smoothly through Wilder's innate sense for storytelling, ending with surprise and satisfaction. Set against the sun-drenched backdrop of Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, Wilder connects contemporary culture, over-the-top personalities and timeless personal demons. In Michael Drayton, Wilder has created a character that embodies the grit of yesterday and the diversity of today.
