Trying to recall a Detective book series

This will be quick and easy for somebody. Back in the mid-'80s, a friend who loved detective stories recommended a series that was set in old Hollywood, and the each novel would be a case built around a particular celebrity. I remember reading one or two but now I can't recall the author or any of the titles.

Could it be the Toby Peters Mystery Series?

I never heard of the Toby Peters series, but it sounds like something I would like and they have some audiobooks on Hoopla. I just checked out Never Cross A Vampire.

I’m not familiar with Toby Peters, but I googled the question and found a similar series by George Baxt. Now I want to read the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers one.

The Toby Peters series is a fun one. I have several of these old Stuart Kaminsky paperbacks -- good stuff
