9781410402837: Ghosttown (Thorndike Mystery)

Still working from a distressed office on Hollywood Boulevard, with ex-prostitute and now legal secretary Lupe Ramos, Whitney Logan is summoned to the LA Criminal Courts Building to defend Tony Red Wolf against one of Division 40 s lesser crimes drunk and disorderly. But early the next morning, Whitney stands face-to-face with Tony Red Wolf over a trash can that contains the severed head of Shirley Yellowbird on top of a pile of dismembered body parts. Tony s only explanation he had a vision of the murder. Realizing that she may be dealing with a psychopath, but knowing that if Tony is arrested he ll be assigned a more high-profile attorney, Whitney reluctantly agrees to wait 48 hours before surrendering her client in order to collect evidence that may exonerate him. Whitney may have finally found her chance to be a hotshot criminal attorney. Or be disbarred. Or end up in a trash can like Shirley Yellowbird. From an occult shop in Hollywood, to a Indian bar where even half-breeds are unwelcome, to a fabled ghost hotel in Los Angeles, where a medicine man is said to hold all the secrets...Whitney and Lupe are drawn into a mystery so dense that even the edges of reality itself become uncertain.
