In his sizzling first novel, the creator of L.A. Law and NYPD Blue plunges a down-on-his-luck Hollywood writer into the thick of a murder investigation, which he uses to get better material for his screenplay. When Bobby Newman spies upon his neighbors one day through his $4,000 telescope, he sees a beautiful woman making love to a handsome actor named Ramon. But when their pillow talk turns sour, Bobby watches as she bludgeons her lover to death with his own acting trophy. Instead of reporting it to the police, Bobby decides to write about it and to turn investigator himself. But he does more than sneak into the dead man's house and steal incriminating video tapes. In this Hollywood funhouse, only the most manipulative will survive. Download and start listening now!

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James | 9/11/2010

    " Bochco - Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law and NYPD Blue. Phew.
    This isn't anything like as good. It passed a few hours on a rainy day.
    Not dreadful but I didn't like any of the characters and worse still I didn't care what happened to them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 8/8/2010

    " yeah, there aren't any really admirable people in here, and they tend to be flat stereotypes, but damn, the phrases are fun and it's a majorly entertaining book. And the structure is very cool. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christa | 5/5/2010

    " Steven Bochcho should write more books. I know he's had several successful TV series. It has a wonderful twist ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 2/16/2010

    " This book was way too corny and predictable. I could have guessed the end about 25% of the way through. No twists or turns that couldn't already be anticipated. "
