Shelves: mysteries
The first two Whitney Logan mysteries in one volume. Whitney, a left-leaning UCLA law school grad teams up with Lupe, a prostitute with a heart of gold, to solve mysteries. In Dogtown, the setting is the world of Central American immigrants; in Soultown, the women have a client from the Korean community. In both novels, the details are fresh; and the mood is noir.
