Private Investigator Dirk Slade is looking for the killer of his best friend, as well as a missing teenager--the son of Dracula. Along the way he encounters the Wolfman, Frankenstein's monster and his former bride, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Leech Woman, the Invisible Man, Wasp Woman, and a host of other old horror movie characters. That's because Monster Town is set in an early sixties ghetto of Hollywood, where the monsters of black and white horror films have taken up residence, now that they're no longer in vogue. In this existence, monsters played themselves in the movies. THEY were the actors. Now most of them are just regular folk, with regular jobs.Slade's investigation leads not only to a number of murders, but a political cover-up and threat to the well-being of every citizen of Monster Town.There are plenty of dames giving this private eye the eye, but only one catches his. Star is a gorgeous torch singer with a yen for Hollywood but a dark past. Slade's attracted to her like a moth to a flame, but doesn't believe she's telling him everything she knows.Helping Slade along the way is his friend Kink, a sexy but disgraced fairy once known as "Wink"--back when she used to make movies for kids. Everyone knows about her scandal, but Tinseltown's loss was Monster Town's gain--at least according to Kink.This satire on old film noir and hard-boiled detective stories plays its mysterious plot straight, despite the bountiful list of quirky characters and its sardonic narration. Golden's Monster Town is unlike any book you've ever read... any place you've ever visited.(Monster Town is currently in development to become a new TV series.)
