So when an orchestra conductor is shot dead in front of twenty thousand pairs of eyes at the famed Hollywood Bowl, Jardinn is intriguedespecially since two of the prime suspects came to ask for his help before the murder even occurred. However, tracking down the truth won't be easy since it seems no one's word can be trustednot even that of the PI's closest colleagues.

But while the works of mystery writers like Hammett and Raymond Chandler have been immortalized in print and on the movie screen, for decades Whitfield's action-packed tales of betrayal, revenge, greed, and murder were largely ignoredan injustice that is now being rectified to the delight of noir fiction aficionados everywhere.This ebook includes an introduction by Boris Dralyuk.
