"Sensational writing, mordant wit, an intricate crime puzzle..."
Harlan Ellison

Hardboiled private eye Leo Bloodworth and his self-appointed partner, fifteen-year-old Serendipity Dahlquist, are back in a wild and deadly new mystery that's every bit as brilliant and memorable as SLEEPING DOG, a New York Times Book of the Year, a Nero Wolfe Award winner, and a finalist for the Edgar, Shamus and Anthony Awards.

"Dancingly macabre, packed with perils, pungent with humor."
The Sunday Times (London)

This time, Leo and Serendipity are on the trail of a teenage runaway and missing pair of sapphire earring, two seemingly separate, increasingly dangerous cases rife with gang members, designer drugs, killer birds, DIY plastic surgery...and a terrorist plot that could plunge sunny Southern California into a permanent nuclear winter.

"An intelligent, playful, knowledgeable writer... Lochte has a great gift for the grotesquerie." Los Angeles Times

"Deliciously humorous and touching." Publishers Weekly

I regret the money wasted on this book. I was mislead by the listing of awards.

This book made no sense, did not give the reader any opportunity to solve the mystery and missed every time to advance the story.
