But then, by chance, he meets the beautiful Lomita Nairn, a woman almost fifty years his senior. The attraction is mutual and their relationship deepens.

Why We Like It

  • "A tremendous novel, written with great style and assurance. A compelling, edgy, noir narrative recounted in a tone of voice that is at once audacious, coolly knowing, highly observant and wryly funny. And -- as a bonus -- a remarkable, dark portrait of Los Angeles -- city of damaged angels." - William Boyd
  • Evocative portrait of Los Angeles
  • A twist on a traditional murder mystery novel
