Robert S Murillo, author
Newly acclaimed author (San Jose Mercury, SF Examiner.com) Robert S Murillo has written a wonderful tale that delights and entertains. Featuring the incomparable silent film star Louise Brooks, the adventure begins at three AM on a foggy October night in 1927 when she arrives in her chauffeur-driven Duesenberg at the house she once shared with her now-estranged husband. Her plan? To sneak into the house to recover three risqué photos she has left taped to a drawer in her vanity. But she must abandon her mission when she spots her husband standing at the front window. Only it isn't her husband! It’s Mike Lundy, a local writer, who, seeing the vintage car slow in front of his house, believes his nocturnal visitor to be nothing more than a pretty but screwy insomniac visiting “Homes of the Stars.” All this might make sense if Mike lived in 1927. But for Mike, the year is 2011! And that is just page one of THE VANITY.
