The Face on the Cutting-Room Floor

Picador Classic

Cameron McCabe

With an introduction by Jonathan Coe

1930s King's Cross, London.

When aspiring film actress Estella Lamare is found dead on the cutting-room floor of a London film studio, Cameron McCabe finds himself at the centre of a police investigation. There are multiple suspects, multiple confessors and, as more people around him die, McCabe begins to perform his own amateur sleuth-work, followed doggedly by the mysterious Inspector Smith.

But then, abruptly, McCabe's account ends . . .

Who is Cameron McCabe? Is he victim? Murderer? Novelist? Joker?

And if not McCabe, who is the author of The Face on the Cutting-Room Floor?
