Description

LAPD detective Hayden Glass has only one vice...the girls who work the streets he's vowed to protect.

Hayden Glass never had it easy. He fought hard for everything he got, hounded by a shame that he could never quite define or conquer. Now a Los Angeles Police Robbery-Homicide detective, Glass is still haunted by the scars that left a permanent void in his soul. He deals with it the only way he can . . . . he cruises Sunset Boulevard, picking up prostitutes. Hayden Glass is a sex addict.

Called to investigate a heinous crime scene involving the daughter of a prominent L.A. politician, Glass is quickly overwhelmed by the media spotlight. When new murders arise, Glass sees a link where no one else does, realizing that this is the work of a vicious, sadistic sexual predator.

His investigation takes him beyond his temptations and to the line where the deviant behavior that has become his crutch crosses over into deviantly criminal.

Review quote

"Boulevard is raw, twisted, and so hard-boiled it simmers from beginning to end." --Robert Crais, New York Times bestselling author of the Elvis Cole novels

"Relentless and unflinching, a shocking thriller that dares you to keep reading. Schwartz has created one of the most complex and tortured protagonists I've encountered in a long time. A powerful debut." --Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of The Keepsake

"A terrific police thriller. It's fast-paced and convincingly told. The streets of L.A. have never been meaner or seamier. Schwartz is gifted with clear vision and a knowing heart and a way with words. Wonderful." --T. Jefferson Parker, New York Times bestselling author of The Renegades
