In this darkly comic thriller set in modern-day Hollywood, an aging private eye is hired by a rising young actor at the center of a scheme gone wrong.

David Spandau is a P.I. and sometime rodeo cowboy. At the tail end of some much-needed vacation time, he takes a meeting with a talent agent whose client, Bobby Dye, is being blackmailed and threatened. Dye is young, brash, and on the verge of becoming a major star...if he lasts that long. It turns out that Dye faked a threatening note to hide a far more incriminating secret. When Spandau agrees to investigate, the game gets deadly.

Spandau looks like Robert Mitchum and speaks like Humphrey Bogart playing Philip Marlowe. He is surrounded him with other fantastic characters: sadistic talent agents, ambitious mobsters intent on breaking into showbiz, small-time hustlers trying to stay out of the limelight. The setting is Hollywood today, but the mood is L.A. noir: crackling dialogue, a fast-paced plot, and the temptations and illusions unique to the City of Angels. Download and start listening now!

    " What is up with this crap cover? I read good reviews about it, I never would have picked it up in the store. Hollywood, movie stars, mafia connection, retired stunt man detective. Really fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn Kearney | 12/30/2012

    " 3.5 This writer is new to me. Funny and sardonic look at the excesses of the film industry and Hollywood with a reasonably good thriller at its core. "

    " Reading this made me think back to my days working at the Roger Corman studios in Venice, CA. Tough work, but kinda like boot camp. Glad you did it, but glad you don't have to do it over again. "

    " I literally labored through the third of the book and could take it no more. It was boring and unnecessarily repetitive. Nope, I'm not likely to pick up another book by this author. "

    " i liked this book - hope Depp writes more- although i prefer the main character to have a little less baggage. "

    " Clever little tale that doesn't go quite where you are expecting. The low body count is almost entirely accidental which further adds to this novel's quirky nature. A very enjoyable read. "

    " Ho-hum. A book that starts with a promising premise ends in a tale of woe.
    It reads like the author lost something dear to him when writing this book. "

    " Stuntman turns detective, a fairly low-rent detective. Protagonist David Spandau deals w. other small-timers - muscle thugs, club owner, aspiring actress, his ex-wife. A double murder aboard a private boat. Spandau works hard, has modest successes. LA backdrop. "
