Multcolib My Librarian Rachael: California noir
Annotation:In Los Angeles County a family of swindlers stab one another in the back. And then do it again. Brutal people, brutally dark writing.
Annotation:A dance marathon as a nightmare of isolation and exploitation. Both a peek into a world that existed briefly and a point on a continuum of exploitation.
Annotation:Private investigator Lew Archer attempts to navigate the lies of a wealthy ranching family. A fun read and a good introduction to the series. Filled with great period slang.
