Summary

The cops of Hollywood Station are still over-worked, bound by red tape and hobbled by political correctness. Crows (Community Relations Officers) have it easy handling "the sissie beat": domestic disputes, over-excited paparazzi, and chronic complainers. At least, that's the way it seems. But in Hollywood - where Mickey Mouse is a crack addict and Marilyn Monroe is a man - things are rarely what they seem.

So when two crows find themselves caught up with bombshell Margot Aziz, they think she's just a cute hill bunny. In fact, she's setting them up so she can pull off the perfect murder and walk away with her ex-husband's ill-won fortune. But Margot isn't the only one with a deadly plan.

This hotly anticipated sequel to Hollywood Station is narrated once again by master of dialogue Kerry Shale, who captures the frenetic life of the Los Angeles station with his trademark verve and brio.

Critic reviews

"Oddball characters, quirky dialogue, and nimble plotting. Wambaugh is still the best in the business!" ( Kathy Reichs)
"Wambaugh has a fine ear for dialogue and a sense of humour he uses with discretion...witty and passionate." ( Times Literary Supplement)
"Wambaugh's back and better than ever." ( Independent on Sunday)
"I have been waiting a long time for this book and two pages in, I knew it was worth every minute, month and year. Joseph Wambaugh is the master of the modern police novel - no, scratch that, he invented the modern police novel....A story of cops working the street at the same time the streets are working the cops, it's full of the grit, humor and truth that make it impossible to put down." ( Michael Connelly)
