Overview

DOWNWARD-FACING DEATH...

Blessed with uncanny deductive skills and a blasé disregard for authority, Matt Bolster was a rising LAPD homicide detective by the age of thirty-five. He was also overworked, near-alcoholic, and miserable. Then, to impress a girl, he agreed to try yoga. And with a single savasana, everything changed.

Now Bolster has traded his badge for a three-day stubble and the life of an itinerant yoga teacher, dabbling in PI work to make rent. He mostly handles missing-persons cases, credit-card fraud — nothing too messy. But that’s before Ajoy Chaterjee, the wealthy mogul behind one of the world’s leading yoga-business empires, is found murdered inside his West L.A. flagship studio. Bolster knows the LAPD doesn’t have a prayer of cracking the secrets of the yoga world. But he does, and he really needs the dough.

Of course, sticking to the principles of the yamas and niyamas during a murder investigation isn’t easy, especially with so many alluring women among the suspects. But personal ethics will be the least of Bolster’s problems if the killer finds him first.

Meet the Author

Neal Pollack was born in Memphis, Tennessee, but spent most of his childhood in Arizona. After graduating from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, he worked as a staff writer at the Chicago Reader. His first book, The Neal Pollack Anthology of American Literature, was published in 2000, becoming an (almost) instant cult classic. His debut novel, Never Mind the Pollacks, hit shelves in 2003, and was shamelessly promoted by his band, The Neal Pollack Invasion. In 2007, he published Alternadad, a bestselling memoir that was optioned for film and television and led to a miserable sub-career as a daddy blogger. In 2010 Pollack became a certified yoga teacher and published Stretch, a nonfiction account of his adventures in American yoga culture. He has contributed to The New York Times, Wired, Slate, Yoga Journal, and Vanity Fair, among many other publications and has published crime fiction in numerous anthologies. Thomas & Mercer published his historical noir novel Jewball in March 2012. He and his wife, the painter Regina Allen, live with their son in Austin, Texas.
