At a glamorous Hollywood party with his new wife, Alexa, Detective Shane Scully overhears a famous producer make a suspicious remark about the strange deaths of his two ex-wives. Is he serious or merely joking around with his coterie of hangers-on? This becomes more than just police business, because the party is to celebrate the engagement of the producer to Alexa's closest friend.

Against his wife's wishes, Shane begins to look into this heavy-hitter's past. At the same time, he becomes aware of a high-profile wiseguy's attempt to control Hollywood's unions. He initiates an elaborate and expensive sting operation, actually setting up a phony production company to produce a bogus movie at LAPD expense. The plan is to draw the starstruck wiseguy into revealing his real purpose for coming to L.A. But before long, the overbudgeted movie is rocketing into production.

While he struggles to keep his sting operation from spinning wildly out of control, he and Alexa find themselves involved in something much bigger than they had ever imagined, something that puts all their lives on the line. Download and start listening now!

    " A fast-paced, but rather convoluted mystery involving a Shane Scully and the LlAPD, a former informant, a film producer, a prostitute, a film project, a suspicious fiance, three LA gangs involved in a gang war, the mafia, and drug runners. Whew!! An entertaining read! "
