Overview

Eddie Vegas made a terrible mistake. Now he has to pay the price. After a botched debt collection turned double murder, Eddie splits, desperate to avoid his employer, notorious L.A. crime boss Saul Benedict, and his men (and Eddie's ex-partners), Floyd and Sawyer, as well as the police. Soon he becomes entangled with the clever and beautiful Dakota, a Native American woman fresh in the City of Angels to find her missing friend—someone Eddie might know something about. Meanwhile in Texas, ex-assassin Rufus, seeking vengeance for his murdered brother, takes up his beloved daggers one final time and begins the long drive to L.A. When the bodies begin to mount, Detective Alison Lockley's hunt for the killers becomes increasingly urgent. As paths cross, confusion ensues, and no one's entirely sure who's after who. But one thing is clear: They're not all getting out of this alive. As much a love letter to neo-noir cinema and L.A. as it is satire, the first book in the Angel City novels is a lightning-speed crime thriller equal parts Elmore Leonard and Quentin Tarantino.

Reviews

"Satire at its best... a shout out to some of the best pulp movies and the best crime stories ever... Be prepared not to take a breath" — Anne-Marie Reynolds, Reader's Favorite

"like Tarantino on the page... rushes at you from page one." — Dietrich Kalteis, award-winning author of RIDE THE LIGHTNING

"Elliott has a gift for upholding momentum that never slows. The characterization is great, but it's the high-octane action and a horde of twists along with tight plotting that make the book a winner." — THE PRAIRIES BOOK REVIEW

"...could have been written during the heyday of noir novels... Elliott is an insightful writer honoring the past with a jet-fueled tale of the present. His novel is sharp, stylish, and well-written. It makes reading fun again." — Joe Kilgore, US REVIEW OF BOOKS

"A multifaceted series opener by a promising new voice in hard-boiled crime fiction... Fans of... Elmore Leonard and Jim Thompson, will find much to savor here." — Kirkus Reviews

"... a new spin on the crime thriller genre" — Philip Zozzaro, San Francisco Book Review

"... fast-paced and chock full of interesting characters [and] chillingly delicious evil" — James Bernstein, IndieReader

"Elliott has a real feel for comedic noir in the Elmore Leonard vein, and his debut novel screams cult classic." ?— Booklist
