The second action-packed, hard-boiled Vince Slader PI novel
“When Freddie Sharpe starts to sing a million teenagers get sent the facts of life. Special delivery…”
Ex-cop turned PI Vince Slader is hired to protect Freddie Sharpe, an obscenely rich, obscenely arrogant, obscenely talented, and obscenely obscene big name singer… who moves through the sin-filled mansions, back alleys, bars, clubs and studios of Tinseltown with an entourage of hangers-on and sycophants, any one of whom could be homicidally jealous of their not-so-benevolent benefactor.
“Demaris saturates the prose with gunplay, fast cars and sexy women. The criminals are edgy, but the hero is a valid, uncompromising tough guy who serves as the perfect crime combatant.” The Paperback Warrior
“Demaris is a writer of real talent…as good as pulp fiction gets.” NB Magazine UK
