What People are Saying About This

Bestselling author of The Tenth Circle & Strong Rain Falling - Jon Land

"Not since Elmore Leonard's seminal Get Shorty has a novel so brilliantly skewered all things Los Angeles. One of the creative forces behind Murder She Wrote, Tom Sawyer plays it all for fun. The result is Cross Purposes, a comic farce of Hiaasen-esque proportions, populated by all manner of rogues, ruffians, and refugees from a modern-day Damon Runyon opus. Zany, sidesplitting!"
