About The Gatsby Game:

This novel offers a possible solution to a real unsolved Hollywood mystery—the death in 1973 of David Whiting during the filming of the Burt Reynolds’ movie, "The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing". Whiting was found dead in the motel room of the actress Sarah Miles. It destroyed Sarah Miles' career and her marriage.

When Nicky Conway meets Fitzgerald-quoting Alistair at a Princeton mixer in 1969, she falls for his retro, Jazz-Age charm. But she discovers he’s a con man obsessed with his own “Daisy”—British actress Delia Kent. After Alistair manipulates Nicky into nannying for Delia’s daughter on the set of aHollywood film, Delia finds Alistair dead in her motel room. Local police can’t decide if it’s accident, suicide—or murder, in which case, Nicky is the prime suspect.

  1. Thanks so much for featuring The Gatsby Game today, Donna! This story is based on the mysterious death of David Whiting, a man I dated in college. He always said I "could see through him" and knew him "better than anybody." He carried a letter I wrote him around for two years. So I think I may know better than anybody how he really died. This is a novel based on that knowledge. I hope people will give it a look.

  2. Gatsby Game deserves to be in the spotlight. It's heartfelt, extremely funny, quirky, and the mystery & romance bits end in wonderfully satisfying manners. I heartily recommend it.
