Product description


"A riveting stand-alone thriller. . . . In a novel that marries celebrity culture, surf noir and the bonds of friendship, Hamilton is at the top of her game."--"Kirkus"

"A tale about unbridled ambitioin, friendship, and betrayal....Realistic characters live in Hamilton's L.A., where the division between the haves and the have-nots can be immense. . . . A welcome return."--"Sun-Sentinel"

"A tale about unbridled ambition, friendship and betrayal... A welcome return."--Oline Cogdill, "Associated Press"

"Denise Hamilton scores her largest and greatest triumph: "Damage Control" is a great mystery, and, much more rarely, a superb psychological thriller. Kudos to this brilliant talent."--James Ellroy

"Hamilton has constructed an intricate and finely-balanced thriller that joins all the flavors and worlds of southern California into a heady cocktail of sex, celebrity, and consequence."--BN.com

"The mystery Hamilton conjures is convincing, and she has a fine and accurate eye for how privileged Anglenos live. But it's her ability to pull the curtain back on the often-opaque world of crisis management that will stay with you long after the novel is finished." -NPR.org

"You can't beat L.A.-based noir for moodiness, and no one writes it better than Denise Hamilton."--"USA Today"

"You can't beat LA-based noir for moodiness, and no one writes it better than Denise Hamilton."--"USA Today"
