Overview

When a stranger jumps into Celeste's car and begs her to help him escape his pursuer, she decides to help him out. Drawn into the mystery, Truman tries to help Rolán recover some compromising evidence that his former boss, Davo, is using to blackmail him. Davo turns out to be more than a penny-ante local crook, with an expensive secret and shadowy connections overseas. Working undercover, Celeste collaborates with Mariam, Davo's wife, on a design project, and gradually gets more entangled with her when Mariam asks for her help navigating LA's art world.

Things come to a head in a cluttered self-storage unit when Truman and Celeste uncover the truth about Rolán and learn what Davo is really up to. The feds intercede when the pair get ensnared in their surveillance of the players. Celeste has to decide whether her feelings for their goldbrick client are eclipsed by his bad behavior, while Truman blithely hits on the G-man and hooks up with one of the tangential lowlifes.

Join the bar-hopping, booze-swilling duo as their digging pushes things right to the edge, where Truman and Celeste have to figure out whether to do what's easy or do what's right.

About the Author

Washed out of journalism when employment in the field collapsed under the weight of perpetual disruption, Chester Henry subsequently spent time as a stringer and working on street rags in Latin America and Eastern Europe. Skeptical of dogmatism and obsessive about following politics, Henry's time abroad has led him to strive to remain dispassionate about everything except his novels. These days based in Los Angeles, Henry relishes the density and the diversity of the metropolis.
