A failed screenwriter turned private detective has his life turned upside-down when he’s talked into stealing MacGuffin, an unusual Tinseltown memento, from the home of one of Hollywood’s most infamous directors. This odd piece of memorabilia has had a storied and deadly chain of custody since the silent era and is prized among some of Hollywood’s elite. Along the way there is murder, a beautiful woman, and a colorful cast of characters all playing their roles in the theft. Set in present-day Baltimore, Stealing MacGuffin pays homage to the likes of Dashiell Hammett and the hard-boiled detective story, while at the same time spoofing Hollywood both past and present.
Matthew Kastel lives in an undisclosed location in suburban Maryland with his beloved black lab, Hershey...and the rest of his family.
