Bogart '48



The plot was mysterious and exciting and I thought it was perfectly written. Johnny Hawks has been murdered. Bogart and Peter work together to solve the murder and stop a bomb they suspect will explode in the Shrine Auditorium on Oscar night.

I would categorize this book as a mystery thriller. It's written in the third person during 1948, the golden ages, in the entertainment industry. Of course, the the story takes place in Hollywood, the epicenter of the entertainment world. The dialogue was perfectly written to portray that time period. It was probablyhe plot was mysterious and exciting and I thought it was perfectly written. Johnny Hawks has been murdered. Bogart and Peter work together as sidekicks, to solve the murder and stop a bomb they suspect will explode in the Shrine Auditorium on Oscar night.

If I do have one complaint, it would be that the book had some errors to the kindle edition. Words and numbers are combined when they shouldn't be, quotation marks were sometimes asterisks. It makes it very distracting to read. I believe there were even paragraph breaks in the middle of a sentence. I like to read books a bit more smoothly. I would rate this book as a 3/5.
