‘The best new private eye in fiction since Raymond Chandler’ Dan Wakefield

TV reporter Candy Sloan is in danger, after investigating labour racketeering in Hollywood’s movie industry. Someone isn’t happy about it. Spenser is hired to keep Candy safe until the story breaks, but when he discovers quite how far she is willing go to secure her headline, he begins to have second thoughts about the job. But soon her unorthodox approach isn’t his only concern…
