Swift, savage L.A. noir. To small-time skip tracer Henry Spain, a routine background investigation looks like easy money. Instead he becomes a pawn in the struggle for a dying political boss's shadowy legacy. The Doomsday Book is a magnet for gamblers, gangsters, corrupt executives, pornographers, perverts and psychopaths. Double-dealing and sudden death stretch from mean streets to mansions. Somewhere in the darkness there is a bullet with Spain's name on it... if his own demons don't get him first.
