We all have secrets. Some haunt. Some terrify. Some kill.
When Nora Lord, a rock superstar whose reckless, self-destructive actions were as famous as her music, is found dead from an overdose of Xanax and red wine in a boutique West Hollywood hotel, L.A. Sheriff’s Department homicide detective Jason Chance grabs up the case. On the surface, her death looks like an accident or possible suicide. But Jason isn’t buying it. This maverick investigator, who loves rock and roll and Hollywood as much as he loves his job, digs deep into Nora’s final, tragic days, following a bloody trail from the raucous Sunset Strip to the dark streets of East Hollywood, and on to the protected enclaves of Newport Beach and Pasadena. He clashes with his partner and his bosses as he uncovers a web of obsession, corruption, blackmail, and murder.
From Josh Griffith–author of THE LOST MAN, THE FORGOTTEN PLACE, and co-author (with Michael Malone) of the NY Times bestselling novel, THE KILLING CLUB–comes a harrowing new mystery, the first in the Jason Chance Novels. THIS LONELY TOWN plunges you deep into the dark heart of Los Angeles. It will leave you breathless.
