Jimmy Cooper, a former child star and recovering addict, has gotten his second chance at fame as L.A.’s most popular private detective, but his latest case threatens to take it all away.
Hotter than ever, everyone wants a piece of Jimmy, from Hollywood producers thirsting to take advantage of his fame to another former child star who wants to be just like him. And then there’s the return of his long-absent father. Jimmy wonders if he deserves all this attention and just wants a new case to take his mind off it all.
Lucky for him, Patrick Beverly has been kidnapped. Jimmy is hired by the billionaires Robert and Eva Beverly to find their college-aged son before the ransom of fifty million dollars in diamonds is due. They have one caveat: the police can’t get involved.
As Jimmy navigates the landscape of wealth and privilege, his own father lures him back into a life that almost killed him.
In the page-turning sequel to Lawrence Allan’s hilarious, award-winning detective novel BIG FAT F@!K-UP, will Jimmy get Patrick home safely, or will the case be thrown into a tailspin?
