At the Blue Dahlia, where homicide detective Carmen Molina moonlights as a torch singer, she finds a dead woman lying next to her can in the parking lot. The words "she left" are spray-painted nearby. Soon, a second anonymous woman is found dead in another parking lot across town. Is a serial killer at work? Will the tough lieutenant have to resort to the despised help of amateur sleuth Temple Barr to crack the case? Maybe the wily police lieutenant has more devious plans in mind as the double murder case unfolds. Meanwhile Midnight Louie finds himself walking on the wild side when a glamorous feline client seeks his help in finding her missing boyfriend.
