Publisher's Summary

The latest rousing tale of sex, sleaze, and salvation in the City of Angels, featuring Dick Henry, the Shortcut Man, by p. g. sturges, whom Michael Connelly calls “a worthy successor to Chandler”. In Angel’s Gate, Dick Henry is drawn into a case involving an aging but still amorous Los Angeles movie mogul named Howard Hogue, who keeps a stable of twenty-plus young starlets available for his highly ritualized and private attentions... Henry is retained by the sister of a young woman who has gone missing and soon he is becoming friendly with Devi Stanton, the “housemother” to the starlets. Despite Devi’s morally questionable responsibilities, she is willing to help (and enjoy the company of) the Shortcut Man, a relationship that will be crucial to his survival. After Hogue’s star director batters one of the starlets in a drug-fueled romp, Henry is drawn into a deeper mystery from years past involving a haunting death on a boat and a missing screenplay written by what appears to be a local homeless man. As he peels back layer upon layer of sordid Hollywood history, Dick Henry must contend with crazed drug dealers, Hogue’s personal doctor, crooked cops, private security henchmen, and Hogue himself, who is so powerful and bunkered in his movie-biz millions that he is not intimidated by the ever-resourceful Henry. Amid a final showdown and genius plot twists, the Shortcut Man must outwit his opponents if he is to have any chance to survive.

    "Number Three Hits the Spot!"
    Where does Angel's Gate rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Of the HUNDREDS of audiobooks I own, seriously, I stopped counting at 280, this is in the top ten favorites list!


    What other book might you compare Angel's Gate to and why?

    You can't compare stories. I would say that the character Dick Henry (P.G. Sturges), though not similar, has the same appeal as the characters James Bond (Ian Flemming), Lisbeth Salander (Stieg Larsson), and Eve Dallas (J.D. Robb). You just want to hear more from this character!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the ex-marine house mother explains to Dick Henry exactly why she needs his help!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I'm usually a "good triumphs over evil" person, so I would have to say that when the really, really, sleazy guy is arrested for murdering the really, sleazy guy, and Dick Henry's ex-partner gets the credit - it made me feel good!


    Any additional comments?

    The story line was amazing! Sad but true, meets ego central! Can't wait for the next Shortcut Man story!
