Synopsis: A thriller set in the fast-paced world of the City of Angels reveals the twisted truths that lie behind the twin worlds of high fashion and pornography, using high-caliber fashion photographer Nick Gardner as the catalyst. A first novel. 50,000 first printing.
From Booklist: Nick Gardner is a hotshot L.A. fashion photographer who's living the high life, driving a black Lamborghini and dating a string of gorgeous models. He has so carefully crafted his hipster image that no one would suspect he used to be a shooter on hard-core pornography films. After attending a sleazy party chockablock with burned-out rock stars and has-been actors, Nick hooks up with a free-basing beauty. Then her mangled body appears in a Dumpster outside his home, and he's arrested for murder. To escape the frame-up, Nick must revisit the old haunts of his porn-film days. The tough-guy patter here never quite works, often seeming more corny than atmospheric, but Lankford's L.A. is suitably down and dirty, perpetually engulfed in a haze of smoke as brushfires rage out of control. Flawed but with enough good bits to please genre fans. Joanne Wilkinson
