In the thrilling post-Second World War novel Stardust by Joseph Kanon, protagonist Ben Collier enters the world of American filmmaking only to become embroiled in a plot of epic proportions. He’s returned from serving in Europe to California, where he finds his director brother Daniel comatose after a fall from a window. When Daniel dies, Joseph wonders whether it was accident, suicide or something more. His hunt leads him to discover an anti-Communist government offensive focused on the film industry and his brother’s role in it. Mixing real figures with fictional ones, Kanon creates an engaging mystery and depicts an era faithfully.
