Murder at the Cannes Film Festival
A former television detective, now a character actor, comes under suspicion when his co-stars begin to turn up dead in Cannes. Nathan Booth arrives in Cannes to discover the small role that brought him there -- as Hemingway's editor in the Borelli Brothers' film "Hemingway Loved Me" -- has been cut. Stranded in Cannes with no hotel room and no money, he is forced to work as a seat-filler at the opening ceremonies. It is there that Booth discovers the lifeless body of his co-star and "Hemingway" headliner Thada Pryce, the victim of what appears to be a fast-acting poison, seated next to him. Pursued by Madame Reno, the city's deft-yet-sultry police chief, Booth quickly finds himself cast as the prime suspect in a real murder investigation.
