Click here to read reviewer Luan Gaines' take on Hollywood Hills or here for Bob Walch's review.

This is the author's fourth installment in his Hollywood Station novels. Beginning with Hollywood Station and continuing with Hollywood Crows then Hollywood Moon, this newest addition finds the writer back on the mean streets of Hollywood, where his literary police force track down hookers, tweakers, and any other bad guys breaking the law.

His new one deals with the Hollywood police force, some drugged-out miscreants, the shady owner of an art gallery and some forged art. There is blackmail, double-dealing, lying, cheating, stealing, and gunplay - all the elements you've come to expect in a Wambaugh book.

Though Wambaugh sometimes falls down the drain of his own bad cliches and thin dialogue, he's a fun writer, and his books are always delightful diversions while you're reading them. This one will keep your attention to the very end, where it whips through the streets and boulevards of Hollywood as good guys chase bad guys and everybody gets caught up in the magic and mayhem of Tinseltown.
