Summary

Mystery. Murder. Men in silk stockings. Hollywood nights are heating up. 

Hardboiled Los Angeles PI Cain Noble is hired by wealthy and gorgeous Camille Astor to find her husband and a priceless work of art, both of which have disappeared. 

At the nightclub owned by Mr. Astor, Cain encounters the mesmerizing Lily Lavender, who has the body of a goddess and the sultry voice of an angel - but is really a young man named Riley who attracts trouble like a magnet. 

What’s a private dick in the vein of LA’s bygone era and a cross-dressing burlesque starlet to do when faced with the hidden decadence and lethal dangers of the Hollywood Hills? They have their work cut out for them because they haven’t even scratched the surface of an elaborate scheme more twisted than anyone could ever have imagined.

A perfect little pulp

This was exactly everything I wanted. Sexy, modern, with pulpy, noire flavours and the typical finish of pretty men getting it on. There was a bit of preachy notes, but they go down smooth with the overall delicious finish. I loved most of the characters, and I would absolutely watch this if it were made into a film. In fact, let’s make that happen...

Eh

The other reviews mentioned the story being too preachy, but I couldn’t imagine a noir detective story being preachy. Sadly this story managed it. The story starts well but devolves into preaching scenes and a bizarre mystery. If you’ve got the romance package, it’s not too awful to kill time with, but I’m glad I didn’t spend a credit.
