P.I. Duke Rogers screws up a case.  Real bad.  When the Weasel, as Duke calls him, comes to him, Duke thinks it will be an easy-money assignment.  Find the Weasel's old schoolmate, Teddie Matson.  And Duke does.  Finds her fast and easy for a quick two hundred bucks.

 

A couple of days later Teddie Matson, beautiful, black co-star of a TV sitcom, is dead.  Her killer, who everyone thinks is a deranged fan, is nowhere in sight.

 

No one knows who the killer is.

 

No one except Duke.

 

And he has no way to trace him.

"WHITE HEAT is a riveting read of mystery, much recommended."

   —Midwest Book Review

 

"[WHITE HEAT] really caught early 90s LA, in all its sordid glory. And had me turning pages late into the night. I think WH is up there with the best of the LA novels, but has an air of authenticity that many lack."

   —Woody Haut, journalist, author of NEON NOIR: Contemporary American Crime Fiction

 

"Every page is on fire."

   —Jon P. Bloch, Kindle Book Review
