Ex vice-cop Vince McNulty is technical advisor for Titanic Productions in Boston. It’s not like walking the beat back in Yorkshire but it’s a living.
“Can you get this guy to stop walking like a duck?”
“I know lots of cops who walk like ducks.”
“In England maybe. In America they walk like John Wayne.”
Teaching Alfonse Bayard to walk like a cop was only part of McNulty’s duties. Working for a tinpot movie company meant his job description included on set security, liaising with local police and even doing a little stunt work. Larry Unger liked to get his money’s worth. At least it got McNulty to America, where he could search for his missing sister who had been sold into adoption from Crag View Children’s Home back in the UK.
Investigating stolen film stock should have been a fairly innocuous task but when it leads to torture porn and snuff videos it soon turns into something much darker. And far more dangerous.
