RARA-AVIS: Black is the Fashion for Dying

I'm a big fan of Jonathan Latimer's Solomon's Vineyards and his Bill Crane series, and recently I got my hands on what I believe was his last book, Black is the Fashion for Dying. It's very good - has some of the oddness and perverseness of Solomon's and some of the screwball nature of his Bill Crane series. Basically a locked room murder of fading but conniving actress that takes place on a movie set, and told in third person in alternating chapters by different characters involved. One of the main characters, a movie script writer, you have a sense is somewhat autobiographical. Definitely worth looking for.
