9780062229014: Point Doom

From Dan Fante, the son of novelist John Fante, comes a gritty detective novel featuring JD Fiorella, an ex-private investigator who's bent on avenging his friend's murder.

Failed private investigator JD Fiorella was a pro at finding trouble. Mixing it up with the wrong people in New York, he escaped to L.A.—only to hit rock-bottom after too many nightmares and too much booze.

Now forty-six and sober, JD is working hard to get it together. Living in Malibu at his mother's house in Point Dume, he's got a new job selling used cars with his friend Woody and a new girlfriend. But just as things are looking up, JD discovers a gruesome murder. Now the ex-private detective has to make a choice.

Determined to exact vengeance, he follows a twisting trail of clues that leads him to unexpected truths about himself and his new life—and to a psychopathic killer with an eerie connection to his past. And, as JD soon learns, this time there's no easy way out.

About the Author:

Dan Fante is the author of the memoir Fante, the novels 86'd, Chump Change, Mooch, and Spitting Off Tall Buildings, and several books of poetry, short stories, and plays. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and son.

From Booklist:

Fante’s new revenge thriller revisits the dark mix of anger and alcoholism so prevalent in his well-received Bruno Dante series. JD Fiorella’s last binge wrecked his life pretty thoroughly, but now, thanks to AA and his buddy Woody, he has a new job and is slowly paddling toward solvency. Unfortunately, those AA meetings haven’t mellowed JD’s anger, and a road-rage incident leads to the destruction of his newly ordered life. In rapid succession, his car is torched, and he’s booted from the new job. Then he visits Woody’s apartment and finds his friend murdered.JD is a loyal guy, and he uses his hunger for revenge and his wealth of PI experience (acquired before his bingeing days) to hunt the killer. Point Doom is all about suspense; JD’s investigative experience is valuable, but his impulsiveness and anger regularly eliminate that advantage. Fante seasons the story with a steady flow of inventive violence, but, in the end, it’s JD’s self-sacrificing loyalty that will win over readers. --Christine Tran
