's review

really liked it
bookshelves: crime-fiction

When Ellen Lang walks into Elvis Cole detective agency she asks him to find her missing husband Mort & their son Perry as they are nowhere to be found the case seems simple enough but Elvis isn't thrilled neither is his partner & gun dealer Joe Pike.

Their search down the seamy side of Hollywood's studios lots & sculpted lawns leads them deep into a nasty world drugs, sex & murder. Everybody from cops to starlets & crooks turn on Elvis & Pike, i found this to be okay but i thought it dragged a bit in the middle then came up with a bang to end the story. 31/2 stars
