Live Long Day is the fifth novel in the thrilling Malone Private Investigator Series of Crime and Suspense Thrillers. If you like page turning action, dry wit, and a hint of romance, then you'll love this high-octane private investigator thriller.
On the surface, except for a strict, ill-tempered step-father, Bridgette Carpenter seems to have everything a teenage girl could want. She has a family, nice clothes and lives in a nice home in a nice middle-class neighborhood. But, if everything is so right, why does everything seem so wrong? Malone decides to find out when he hires on to go after a runaway girl.
Unfortunately, by the time Malone picks up her trail Bridgette has already traveled to a place that seems a million miles away from her nice home in Echo Park. Now she is caught up in the dark world of drugs, pimps, and sexual exploitation—a kind of hell on earth inhabited by people who care only about making a fast buck and savoring forbidden pleasures.
Can Malone find Bridgette in time before she falls victim to appalling, unspeakable acts that will steal her childhood and perhaps her very life?
