A great first novel that captures the reader from the first page when the main character, Detective Tully Jarsdel, is called to investigate the macabre murder of a "baked" man.
The mystery is, of course, the essence of the novel, but the character development of the professor-turned detective and the changes of the glamor-turned dirty city of Hollywood make this a great read.
Career changes are difficult and the reader will see the challenges from co-workers, as well as family, that help define the main character as he, and his partner, Detective Oscar Moreles, unravel the twists in the plot.
Joseph Schneider is an excellent writer who leaves the reader with hopes of more stories to follow.
