9780316045186: Hollywood Moon: A Novel (Hollywood Station)

There's a saying at Hollywood station that the full moon brings out the beast--rather than the best--in the precinct's citizens. One moonlit night, LAPD veteran Dana Vaughn and "Hollywood" Nate Weiss, a struggling-actor-turned cop, get a call about a young man who's been attacking women. Meanwhile, two surfer cops known as Flotsam and Jetsam keep bumping into an odd, suspicious duo--a smooth-talking player in dreads and a crazy-eyed, tattooed biker. No one suspects that all three dubious characters might be involved in something bigger, more high-tech, and much more illegal. After a dizzying series of twists, turns, and chases, the cops will find they've stumbled upon a complex web of crime where even the criminals can't be sure who's conning whom.

Wambaugh once again masterfully gets inside the hearts and minds of the cops whose jobs have them constantly on the brink of danger. By turns heart-wrenching, exhilarating, and laugh-out-loud funny, Hollywood Moon is his most thrilling and deeply affecting ride yet through the singular streets of LA.

About the Author:

Joseph Wambaugh, a former LAPD detective sergeant, is the bestselling author of 18 prior works of fiction and nonfiction, including The Choirboys and The Onion Field. In 2004, he was named Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America. He lives in southern California.

From AudioFile:

At least 15 characters hit the Los Angeles streets in this book, and because of Joseph Wambaugh's colorful writing and Christian Rummel's amazing narration, all are well differentiated and fun to follow. The diverse cops Rummel nails include a Latina, an aspiring actor, a Lothario, an Asian-American woman, a fresh-faced officer, and a surfer. Villains include a disturbed teen, a frustrated actor-turned-grifter, a husky-voiced hacker, a redneck druggie, and a hip African-American. On one fateful night all their lives intertwine. Wambaugh is at the top of his game in the latest of his recent Hollywood series. He takes the time to develop the characters while keeping the plot moving. Rummel never stumbles, shifting and deftly juggling the many identities. Under a Hollywood moon, it seems, anything can happen. M.B. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
