“Somehow, this book pulls off the feel of classic noir in a very current LA. It's funny and fast and provides an insider look of a version of LA we thought no longer existed.”

Clearly, I’m hard at work on the 3rd book in the award-winning Jimmy Cooper Mystery series. Until that’s done, you’re gonna have to read the first two books. 

As one reviewer wrote “I never knew I needed a funny murder mystery!”
