Good evening, dear reader... Did Alfred Hitchcock the world-famous Master of Suspense have a secret life as a detective? Did his mordant humor hide a deductive mind worthy of a Hercule Poirot or Nero Wolfe? The year is 1957. The sun-tanned citizenry of Los Angeles is in the grip of a bizarre series of murders. Alfred Hitchcock is immersed in the production of his latest film, Vertigo, when he receives a macabre present, the severed ear of a woman. Fearing the ear has to do with the grisly death of a young starlet, Hitchcock decides to investigate. Joining forces with L.A.P.D. detective Chess Slattery, Hitch follows a trail that takes the pair from the mansions of Bel Air to the degraded haunts of Hollywood wannabes to the shabby bungalows of Venice. What they discover puts them in the path of a twisted killer hell-bent on ruining the famous Hitchcock profile. Movie stars, gangsters and cops, the famous and the not so famous, all get swept up in a relentless series of events that threatens to spiral out of control and into disaster -- until Hitch masterminds a thrilling finale worthy of Vertigo itself!
