Product description

Review

...an engaging heroine and a cast of quirky supporting characters who seem to have walked off the set of Sunset Boulevard. -- Booklist

Hamilton captures Los Angeles in a way that's comparable to the skills of Michael Connelly and Robert Crais. -- South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Her reputation for Chandleresque dialog and impeccable historical detail is strongly supported in this highly readable and entertaining story. -- Library Journal

Nobody can do multicultural Los Angeles better than Denise Hamilton. -- The Denver Post

One great ride into classic L.A. noir. Smart, passionate, and filled with heart. -- Robert Ferrigno

So much freshness and sass...comparisons with Raymond Chandler aren't too far out of line. -- Los Angeles Times Book Review
