The year: 1956. The place: Los Angeles, California. When six-year-old Daisy Adler vanishes from her upscale Hollywood Hills home during a crowded New Year's Eve party, LAPD Detective Rusty Hallinan enters a case with more dangerous twists and turns than Mulholland Drive. Hallinan's life hits a bump or two of its own when he's dumped by his wife of eleven years, and falls hard for an enchanting young murder suspect half his age. But what's the connection between the suspect's murdered husband and a dying bar-room stripper? How does Ty the transvestite fit into the puzzle? And where has little Daisy gone--murdered, abducted, or killed by accident? A marvelously intricate historical mystery with an absolutely authentic setting!
