A movie star is typecast as a killer in the second
Dangerous Type Mystery from the New York Times
bestselling author of To Helvetica and Back.
Itâ€™s January, and the Star City Film Festival has taken the
Utah ski resort town by storm. Movie stars are everywhere,
carving fresh powder on the slopes and crossing the
thresholds of Bygone Alleyâ€™s charming boutique
shopsâ€”including The Rescued Word, where Clare Henry and her
grandfather restore old typewriters and beloved books. When
cinemaâ€™s hottest superhero, Matt Bane, enters their store to
buy some personalized notecards, itâ€™s hard not to be starstruck.
But when Clare sees the police leading Matt out of The
Fountain hotel in handcuffs only a few hours later, she
canâ€™t believe her eyes. The affable actor is accused of
killing his sister, but Clareâ€™s convinced heâ€™s wrong for
that role. Now itâ€™s open call for suspects as Clare tries to
reel in the killer before another victim fades to black...

What an intriguing book! I remember when typing was a required class at school. Knowing how to type is an important skill, even today.

I remember typing up an assignment on a typewriter after drawing and labeling the parts of the flower on a sheet of paper.....maneuvering the paper on that typewriter still stands out in my mind... not to mention I can still remember that assignment after all these years!

I HATED manual typewriters. LOVED the electric ones, but
when I started college, they were so big and bulky, it
wasn't even funny. Had to get a boyfriend to lug it up the
stairs to my dorm room. Was so happy when word processors
