L.A. Dead, is a tale of romance and murder that stretches from the Grand Canal of Venice to the mansions of Bel-Air, with a cast of characters who display the best and worst of the Hollywood milieu. Stone's relationship with Dolce, the daughter of a "retired" Mafia chieftain, takes a new turn, and then their plans are shattered by events half a world away. Soon Stone is up to his neck in a baffling murder case that threatens his old love, Arrington, while offering him a new chance for a life he once desperately wanted. But now that it is within his grasp, will he want it again?
With his former NYPD partner, Dino Bacchetti, at his side, Stone plumbs the depths of Hollywood society, and dredges up enough dirt to end the careers of some and send others to prison. The novel climaxes in a court trial that will either condemn or set free an old love, with the hounds of the tabloid press baying at the courthouse doors.

First book I read from this author, good but not over the top great. Got tired of the same lunch of lobster salad mentioned and the need for every woman the main character sees, is walking around naked. Saw no point in these two things occurring over and over. A good read for a rainy day...
