One Day You’ll Burn is a modern-day police procedural set in the mean streets of Los Angeles. Smoothly written, it showcases the author’s intimate familiarity with Los Angeles and the dirty streets of Hollywood that give little hint of Tinseltown’s stories past. It all begins with a virtually unsolvable homicide evidencing a rather torturous brutal killing when a corpse is dumped by a holy shrine in Thai Town, one of the newer neighborhoods of East Hollywood. Instead of a grizzled veteran homicide detective, LAPD brass has paired genius rookies with experienced veterans so that the star of this police story is a newer detective, but one who is a former PHD candidate who has a wonky tendency to go all “Rain-man” on you. The story flowed right off the pages which seemed to melt in my hands.
