Publisher Description

Emmy Award–winning author Matt Goldman brings back Shapiro, the popular Minneapolis private detective, for another thrilling, standalone adventure.

Nils Shapiro accepts what appears to be an easy, lucrative job: find out if Beverly Mayer’s grandson is foolishly throwing away his trust fund in Hollywood, especially now, in the wake of his fiancée’s tragic death. However, that easy job becomes much more complicated once Nils arrives in Los Angeles, a disorienting place where the sunshine hides dark secrets.

Nils quickly suspects that Ebben Mayer’s fiancée was murdered, and that Ebben himself may have been the target. As Nils moves into Ebben’s inner circle, he discovers that everyone in Ebben’s professional life―his agent, manager, a screenwriter, a producer―seem to have dubious motives at best.

With Nil’s friend Jameson White, who has come to Los Angeles to deal with demons of his own, acting as Ebben’s bodyguard, Nils sets out to find a killer before it’s too late.

“Goldman is flat-out hilarious when he’s satirizing Hollywood hustlers…Observing them in groups—pitching ideas, taking meetings and poisoning their best friends—is too funny for words.”

— New York Times Book Review 


  • “Excellent…Goldman takes a classic trope—a working-class private detective set loose in Hollywood—and squeezes enough originality out of it to make for a dazzling tale.”

    — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
  • “Interesting twists, great peripheral characters, insights into specific communities, and enough peril to keep readers turning pages past bedtime.”

    — Booklist (starred review)
  • “A droll portrait of ‘a town where almost everything and everyone was for sale,’ with felonies obbligato.”

    — Kirkus Reviews
