Webster Filmore Goodhue has found temporary work as one of the mop-up crew for the Los Angeles County crime division. In other words, he cleans up grisly crime scenes for the cops. When the daughter of a recent Malibu suicide victim asks for his help cleaning up after her brother has gotten into a little trouble, every cell in Web's brain is telling him to turn her down. But she's very attractive, and before he knows it, he's well on his way to getting his face kicked in, facing down some gun-toting L.A. cowboys, and hanging on for dear life. And that's only the beginning.
"One of the most remarkable prose stylists to emerge from the noir tradition in this century."-Stephen King
