Dead and in Person! A David Beauchamp Mystery

Multiple File Formats

For L.A.’s most uncertain private investigator (and old movie buff) Dave Beauchamp, attending the Hollywood Celebrity Expo should have been Heaven. But it wasn’t, particularly when the show’s stars started turning up dead in highly unusual and personal ways. Before long, Dave finds himself struggling to make sense out of a bizarre case that appears rooted in an unsolved string of murders from the 1980s. Both grippingly suspenseful and laugh-out-loud funny, Dead and In Person! demonstrates that in the real La-La-Land, vintage Hollywood and vintage secrets can sometimes go hand-in-hand in disturbing and deadly ways.


“When author Michael Mallory doesn’t have the readers smiling at his clever asides and observations, he’ll have them laughing out loud.” --Robert S. Levinson, bestselling author of The Stardom Affair.

“Take a befuddled Hollywood detective whose very name most people can’t pronounce correctly, and set him on the trail of a murderer…and you have the making of a darkly comedic romp.” --Robert Masello, TV writer and bestselling author of The Jekyll Revelation.

“You get two for the price of one, a funny romp and a mystery, with a little Hollywood dish thrown in. What more you could ask for?” --Paul D. Marks, Shamus Award-winning author of White Heat.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
