In 1930s Los Angeles, someone desperately wants to know who Danny Landon is. That someone is Danny himself. Intimate associates call him Two Gun Danny, but all the young man really knows is that some terrible incident has erased his memory. According to his boss, mobster Bud Seitz - a vicious, sadistic killer ironically nicknamed The Kind One - Danny's amnesia is the result of a blow to the head with a lead pipe. But Danny's not sure of anything.

As Danny maneuvers through the corrupt, sun-drenched city, he uncovers terrible secrets and finds himself on a mission to liberate those he cares about. Download and start listening now!

    " I loved 'Danny', Dulwich and Sophie. The writing was nice to settle into and was believable; the characters were great to get to know. "

    " This is a perfect noir novel about gangsters in the 1930's. Murder, mayhem, love, mystery and a surprise ending. It has it all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melodie | 2/3/2013

    " Read like a Raymond Chandler book (and that's a good thing). I love Thirties noir mysteries. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 10/6/2012

    " Tom Epperson's book is well-written and interesting, but unrelentingly bleak. I found myself permanently stalled about half-way through it, unwilling to read about the pain and disaster that were obviously ahead for most - if not all - of the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 5/22/2012

    " This will remind you of L.A. Confidential in many ways but more from the gangster angle. It is a good story that has a good pace. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom O'Connor | 3/13/2010

    " Liked this book, although it wasn't as "noir" as the blurbs implied. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrick Gowdy | 2/20/2010

    " A good history of a 1930's Los Angeles. The story is fast-paced, and an easy read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ron | 12/20/2009

    " David Goodis meets Nathanael West in this story about an amnesiac in the employ of a Los Angeles crime boss who's trying to figure out if what everybody's telling him about his past is true-- and it's not all that certain that he's going to have much of a future, either. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michelle | 11/24/2009

    " I like my noir more hard boiled, and frankly, better written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debi | 8/16/2009

    " 3.5 stars- great dialogue and atmosphere ala "L. A. Confidential" "
