Former LAPD detective Charlie Waldo was living in solitude deep in the woods, pathologically committed to owning no more than 100 possessions, until his PI ex-girlfriend Lorena dragged him back to civilization to solve a high-profile Hollywood murder. In this follow-up to Last Looks, Waldo and Lorena have their hands full with a new client, a wild and privileged L.A. teenager named Stevie Rose who tells lies as easily as she breathes. When the teacher Stevie claims seduced her turns up dead, the LAPD pegs her as the prime suspect. Then Stevie disappears, and her parents turn to Waldo to find her—a task that draws him down into Orange County's dangerous and complex worlds, where nothing is as it seems.
