It's always sunny in California until you walk on the wrong side of Sunset Boulevard. And yet the bright lights still call to thousands, and every day new arrivals fill the ranks of Hollywood's underworld of teenage runaways and hopeful stars turned hookers and strippers.

Their stories are too wretched and too sad for society's attention, but when a high-profile lawyer is murdered at the Chateau Marmont, lackluster detective Jimmy McCann takes to the streets and finds himself enmeshed in this complex web of prostitution and drugs, learning that the killer, a young girl named Casey, is a victim in her own right. Delving into Casey's troubled community of homeless runaways, characterized by abuse, rape, death and disease, but also by friendship, loyalty and love, Bill Guttentag has crafted a stunning literary crime novel-based on real-life incidents-that will resound with readers everywhere.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[A] moving, loosely knit crime drama about life on the streets of Hollywood.... Guttentag shows a deft touch with detail as he chronicles an existence marked by moments of sheer panic followed by hours of boredom and mundane routine. The action builds to a hopeful and satisfying conclusion." -- Publishers Weekly
"Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Guttentag unleashes considerable rage against L.A. in this heartfelt mystery set on the seedy side of the city of angels....The introduction of an undercover cop provides welcome juice, and the plots collide in a way so surprising that, well, it would make a good movie." -- Daniel Kraus - Booklist
