In the summer 1953, Private Investigator Will "Lucky" Marks was working as the in-house private eye for Arcane Pacific Pictures. That's the summer when famed director Alister Walters was brutally stabbed to death on the scene of his last blockbuster hit mystery, the 1953 noir cult classic, Witness to the Act. Lucky is on the scene, and is pulled into this deliciously deceitful drama of Hollywood film making.
It's been two years since private eye Will "Lucky" Marks' first case. That was the one that ended a promising police career. It was the one that started it all. The veneer has worn from the once dreamy image of an L.A. Shamus. Now, Lucky takes the cases that come and finds a life somewhere between the glitz of Hollywood and the dregs of humanity.
