Publisher's Summary

Laguna: a place where every day the sun makes a promise the nighttime breaks; where the super-rich live out expensive fantasies in posh beach houses and drown their memories in Cuervo Gold margaritas; where trouble has swept in like a Santa Ana wind, blowing the cover off a world of torture, murder, and blood-red secrets.

It's also a place where a crazed killer has turned paradise into a Disneyland of depraved violence - with a fiery vengeance - and where homicide cop Tom Shephard unravels a grisly mystery. It reaches back across 40 years of sordid sex, blackmail, and suicide into the dark corners of his own past, forcing him to sweat out a deadly truth in the sweltering Laguna Heat.

    "Fabulous"

    This author has a talent for creating sympathetic, deeply nuanced characters that you really care about. Great story too. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Not as good as some of his other books."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    There were times the story characters didn't seem to react to the situation in a believable way. I like twists and turns but this story was kind of flat for me and didn't build any suspense. I tried it two times and it just was not great.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    A different narrator may have been able to improve the book. It seemed a little slow...
