Jeff Sherratt is my special guest on today's show talking about his book Detour to Murder Why did Al Roberts meekly confess to a brutal murder in 1945, then nearly three decades later swear that he’s innocent? Jimmy O'Brien, defense attorney to the dregs of the criminal world, digs into the past, igniting a powder-keg that threatens to expose the long-held secrets behind Detour, the iconic Hollywood film documenting Roberts' story. Secrets that could destroy the underground aristocracy holding power in Los Angeles, city of broken dreams. Jimmy’s ordeal takes him from the bleakness of Roberts' prison cell to the seedy streets of Hollywood, searching to find out who took this DETOUR TO MURDER.
