About this title


Jacob Asch never really considered himself a private detective. He was just an out of work investigative journalist who had had a few hard breaks and would be back in there filing copy again just as soon as he could clear his record. And when he got himself involved in investigating cases like the ritual sacrifice of wealthy girl about town Sheila Warren, he felt more like an amateur then ever. For the trail was to lead through the undergroud of Los Angeles of the 1970s, from its arcane religious sects of Satanists and Jesus freaks to the kinky sexual pleasures of the wealthy who could callously destroy the life of a teenage girl for the sake of a roll of bizarre movie film. The Dead are Discreet introduces a new detective. Jacob Axch, witty, bitter, with his ideals somewhat battered but still intact, works the strange but fascintating underworld of Sourhern California today.
