Description

From Dan Fante, the son of novelist John Fante, comes a gritty detective novel featuring JD Fiorella, an ex-private investigator who's bent on avenging his friend's murder.

Failed private investigator JD Fiorella was a pro at finding trouble. Mixing it up with the wrong people in New York, he escaped to L.A.--only to hit rock-bottom after too many nightmares and too much booze.

Now forty-six and sober, JD is working hard to get it together. Living in Malibu at his mother's house in Point Dume, he's got a new job selling used cars with his friend Woody and a new girlfriend. But just as things are looking up, JD discovers a gruesome murder. Now the ex-private detective has to make a choice.

Determined to exact vengeance, he follows a twisting trail of clues that leads him to unexpected truths about himself and his new life--and to a psychopathic killer with an eerie connection to his past. And, as JD soon learns, this time there's no easy way out.

Review quote

Told in a free-flowing narrative style that features a number of memorable characters, Fante s novel is dark, bleak, gritty, and inventively vulgar. It s also honest, painful, and occasionally tender. --Booklist"
