Praise for The Motion Picture Teller

A BookPage Best Mystery & Suspense Book of 2023

“If you love movies, mayhem and mystery, The Motion Picture Teller has it all . . .  A delightful read, with charming characters and a vivid setting.”

“A marvelously entertaining book—it’s a buddy caper, spy thriller, gritty noir and even a dash of romcom all rolled into one delightfully fresh, highly enjoyable story with a charming cast of characters and a plot full of surprises. Don’t miss this!”
—Liese O’Halloran Schwarz, author of What Could Be Saved

“By turns witty, warm, charming and poignant, The Motion Picture Teller is perhaps Cotterill’s finest novel thus far.”
BookPage, Starred Review

The Motion Picture Teller could be the strangest mystery you read this year, or even this decade. And you absolutely won’t forget it.”
—Kingdom Books

The Motion Picture Teller is a charming novel about hopes, dreams, and having the courage to find the place you’re truly meant to be.”
—Los Angeles Public Library

“A feel-good book for classic movie lovers . . . Satisfying and warmly sentimental.”
Dayton Daily News

“A charming book.”
—Reviewing the Evidence

“Cotterill has a double-edged sense of humor that can be gentle with humans yet skewer political ideology.”
—Kittling Books

“Quite entertaining.”
—The Complete Review

“Ample suspense . . . Cotterill explores with empathy and insight the power of movies to enrich and even guide our lives. An offbeat, uplifting thriller every movie lover will cherish.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Heartfelt characters, vividly drawn setting, and subtle humor . . . Both established fans and those new to Cotterill will be charmed.”
Publishers Weekly

Praise for Colin Cotterill

“Tragically funny and magically sublime.”
Entertainment Weekly

“Wry, culturally incisive and utterly captivating.”
—The Washington Post

“Cotterill has a gift for tempering bad stuff . . . with gently ironic humor and frequent doses of slightly kooky occultism. His books are thus a welcome balm for our own current baffling and chaotic political climate.”
—The Seattle Times
