Nothing ever happens in Dogtown …
The people here—lost souls, all—go through the motions of their days, living in tents, scrounging for food and cash.
Shaw is one of them, no better than anyone else. No better than Seph, who used to hook on the street and shoot up heroin … or Dirty Bob, philosopher-cynic… or Dax, who lords it over the tent city like an angry tin god.
Then a woman named Lily turns up dead in her tent with a knife in her back—murdered in circumstances that make it an impossible crime, one of those locked-room brainteasers that defy all logic. And Shaw is the only one in Dogtown who can piece the puzzle together and point the finger of guilt.
Because he's the only one who cares …
A Death in Dogtown is a 20,000-word novella from Michael Prescott, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Cold Around the Heart, Stealing Faces, The Shadow Hunter, and more than twenty other thrillers.
