Summary
"Former Marine Jimmy Boone - once a bodyguard to Los Angeles's rich and famous - is now on parole and trying to keep his nose clean. He has a job tending bar on Hollywood Boulevard, serving drinks to tourists, and is determined to put the past behind him." "Boone backs up a buddy on a hero-for-hire gig - looking into the mysterious death of a kid on a downtown bus - and one small effort to do the right thing plunges him once again into a world of trouble. Boone learns more about the victim. an innocent who got involved with the wrong people, and his investigation becomes a mission. Along the dangerous margins of Los Angeles, he encounters down-on-their-luck drug dealers, a vengeful stripper, a dogfighting ring, a beautiful ex-cop, a vicious crime boss and his crew, and a fortune in counterfeit bills. Before long, Boone's quest to get at the truth about a murder starts to look more like suicide than redemption."--Jacket
