    An aging but formidable strip-club owner, Claudiu "Manco" Kapak, has been robbed by a masked gunman as he placed his cash receipts in a bank's night-deposit box. Enraged, he sends his half-dozen security men out to find a suspect who is spending lots of cash and is new enough to Los Angeles not to know he was robbing a gangster.

    Story

    I love anything that Thomas Perry writes, and this was a great story; the double crosses were dizzying. But if you are going to get someone to read a book, that person should be provided with the correct ways to say local place names. This fellow mispronounced Sepulveda, La Canada, and, as I recall, La Cienaga. Every time a place was mispronounced I felt as if I had bitten down hard on tin foil. That said, it is a great listen, although it was more complex than many Perry novels, with multiple story lines.
