In 1930s Los Angeles, someone desperately wants to know who Danny Landon is. That someone is Danny himself. Intimate associates call him "Two Gun Danny," but all the young man really knows is that some terrible incident has erased his memory. According to his boss, mobster Bud Seitz-a vicious, sadistic killer ironically nicknamed "The Kind One"- Danny's amnesia is the result of a blow to the head with a lead pipe. But Danny's not sure of anything. As Danny maneuvers through the corrupt sun-drenched city, he uncovers terrible secrets and finds himself on a mission to liberate those he cares about.
"Tom Epperson's Depression-era Los Angeles is spot-on....With gangsters on the chase we race down the Sunset Strip, as bullets are flying and blondes are crying. Epperson knows how to write with philosophic compassion and kick-ass action. What a great read!"-Steve Hodell, bestselling author of Black Dahlia Avenger
