Description

First time in eBook.

Fiora left me on my own for the summer.

When you’re looking for trouble, it isn’t hard to find. Only thing unexpected was ending up in a war as old as the Bible, being fought on the fresh turf of southern California's Gold Coast.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Death is pretty much death, bright red and messy and final. The old truths are the deepest and the hardest to learn.

Sometimes it’s tough to survive that kind of knowledge…

"The most unusual, up-to-date private eye with the hard-boiled characteristics of the legendary Sam Spade..." --San Antonio Express News

"One of the slickest, most likeable detectives." --Mystery News
