Valley of Vice

288 pages3 hours


A hard-boiled thriller of dirty cops and deadly secrets set amid the downtown streets and hilltop mansions of Los Angeles.
In Hollywood, it’s not just dreams that are easily snuffed out.
When a burned body is found on a studio lot, Det. Salvador Reyes and his partner Det. Philippa Wallace are on the scene. The mystery deepens when they identify the corpse as a felon named Bartholomew Pearl who should have been in jail for shooting a fellow detective. Then a city official, Theodore Simons, is found dead of an apparent suicide.
Convinced the deaths are connected, and not everything is what it appears, Reyes and Wallace investigate. Their inquiries take a dangerous turn, pointing to someone in the police department itself. Soon it’s hard to know who is an enemy, and who is a friend.
