"Citizen Hollywood" by Martin Turnbull

“Citizen Hollywood
by Martin Turnbull
Book 3 in the Garden of Allah novels

I am very happy to announce that my next novel “Citizen Hollywood”
is now available.

The story picks up in April of 1939, a month after the end of The Trouble with Scarlett.


Theater and radio wunderkind Orson Welles stashes himself at the Chateau Marmont until he’s ready to make his splashy entrance. But Kathryn Massey knows he’s there.

Now that Kathryn is back at the Hollywood Reporter, she’s desperate to find the Next Big Thing. Scooping Welles’ secret retreat would put her back on the map, but by the time she hears rumors about his dangerous new movie, she’s fallen prey to his charms.

Marcus Adler is still scrambling for his first screen credit. His Strange Cargo will star Clark Gable after Gone with the Wind wraps. A huge opportunity knocks but Machiavellian studio politics mean Marcus’ name might not make it to the screen. It’s time to play No More Mr. Nice Guy.

Gwendolyn Brick is nearly 30. Her baby brother wants her to move with him to the exotic Orient, but she wants to give Hollywood one last go. When she saves Daryl Zanuck from humiliation, he rewards her with a chance at a role in a major movie.

When William Randolph Hearst realizes Citizen Kane is based on him, he won’t be happy—and when Hearst isn’t happy, nobody’s safe.


The first chapter is available to read on my website: CHAPTER ONE
