It was a decade ago when P.I. Burnside arrested Judy, a teenage runaway, for prostitution. He tried to help her, but she betrayed him and he paid an enormous price — losing his LAPD job, along with his honor and reputation.
But Judy is back in L.A. again, and is now desperate for Burnside’s help. Her life is in danger, and she tries to persuade Burnside to accompany her into a dangerous situation. While Burnside isn’t fooled this time, she still manages to rope him in, and he quickly finds himself to be a person of interest in a grizzly Santa Monica homicide.
The story showcases Burnside at his wise-cracking best, exchanging quips with an assortment of fascinating characters. This well-crafted novel is the embodiment of the classic Southern California noir mystery, set against a Los Angeles backdrop, a city that many think they know, but few really do.
