In Harvey's first new thriller in more than fifteen years, a starlet's murder draws an NYPD detective into a cross-country manhunt Mongo wakes up, brushes his teeth, and prepares to kill a movie star. He needs a wig and a phony press pass, as well as a very special tape recorder that holds two flechettes, one of which is earmarked for screen siren Catherine Delure. A bit of smooth talk takes Mongo past Delure's security and into her hotel room, where he completes his assignment with ease. The hit was simple, he thinks. But it is about to go terribly wrong. Delure appears to have been shot during a robbery, but homicide detective Jeb Barker is not fooled. Tracking the self-assured assassin leads the PI first to Las Vegas, then to California--where blue sky and palm trees cannot distract him from the darkness within the hit man's heart.

Pretty good read, well plotted and paced, with semi-realistic police portrayals.

Not too much sex, not too much gore, a thoroughly enjoyable read. Looking forward to his other one.
