Publisher Description

Robert B. Parker and Robert Crais fans will enjoy Edgar Award nominee Timothy Hallinan’s novels featuring overeducated private eye Simeon Grist. In this third book in the cult series, Grist takes a case that leads him to the phantom neighborhoods of Los Angeles’ lost children.

Missing thirteen-year-old Aimee Sorrell ran all the way from Kansas to be a star. But Aimee’s trail soon leads Simeon to the city morgue, the first stop on a perilous journey to find out what happens to America’s lost children when they go looking for love in all the wrong places.

  • “Squeal combines high-octane action, baroque violence, humor, and pathos in a self-assured manner that marks Mr. Hallinan as a capable practitioner of the private-eye tale.”

    - Wall Street Journal
  • “A grimly authentic portrait of LA’s sordid subculture.”

    - San Diego Union
  • “Get a copy of Everything but the Squeal, but be prepared to shut off the phone or fax machine; you won’t want to brook any interruptions once you start it.”

    - Tom Hatten, KNX Radio, Los Angeles
  • “Hallinan employs skillful pacing, LA color, and Simeon’s attractive persona to grip readers.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “Treat[s] a grimly fascinating subject matter and location with sharp-voiced style and verve.”

    - Library Journal
  • “Hallinan once again supplies a riveting story, and Grist continues to be one of the most intriguing of the new private eyes.”

    - Booklist
  • “A kiddie-porn second case for LA private eye Simeon Grist finds him staking out the Oki-Burger hangout as he looks for thirteen-year-old runaway Aimee Sorrell. Grist borrows Jessica, the savvy teen-age daughter of his good friends Annie and Wyatt, to use as bait…Fast-paced action, with grim views of runaway exploiters and their physically abused prey. Jessica and Grist, meanwhile, make for a nonstereotypical sleuthing duo.”
