    DescriptionClay is a successful screenwriter, middle-aged and disaffected; he's in LA to cast his new movie. However, this trip is anything other than professional, and he's soon drifting through a louche and long-familiar circle -- a world largely populated by the band of infamous teenagers first introduced in Less Than Zero. But his debauched reverie is about to be interrupted by a violent plot for revenge and Clay's seemingly endless proclivity for betrayal and exploitation looks set to land him somewhere darker and more ominous than ever before. 'A murder mystery -- a woozy, paranoid, hallucinatory version of LA noir' Sunday Times 'Brilliantly written and coolly self-aware ...Here, as in Less Than Zero, Ellis is plumbing the depths of human nature, exposing it at its worst.' Observer 'The novel is a kind of modern noir and, as in Chandler, the form's accepted master, atmosphere is king. Paranoia prevails' Independent on Sunday

    Review quote
    "Hypnotic. . . . A haunting vision of disillusionment, twenty-first-century style." --"People""This sequel is very much on target. . . . [Ellis] uses the thriller framework to infuse nerve-rending unease into this look at Tinseltown mores. Grade: A-" --"Entertainment Weekly" "Taut and ultimately terrifying. . . . In six novels, the author has emerged as one of the most gifted and serious novelists working in America today." --"Financial Times""Enough talk of [Ellis's] literary genius, let's call him what he really is: a terrific horror writer. . . . An absolute creepfest [and] a festival of panting paranoia."--"Chicago Sun-Times" "Brutally conceived, and effectively done. . . . There is no doubt that Ellis retains the ability to startle and disquiet." --"The Times Literary Supplement "(London) "Arrestingly spare . . . will leave you feeling bruised, guarded and a little nervous about noises at night. . . .
