Summary

Summary

Edgar Award finalist Timothy Hallinan continues his six-book Simeon Grist series with this white-knuckle mystery—a must-listen for fans of Robert B. Parker's Spenser novels.

Simeon Grist knows LA inside and out—the sex for sale, the chic seductions, every rip-off from City Hall to Venice. So when he's hired by a Hollywood recording company to shadow one Sally Oldfield, suspected of embezzlement, Grist discovers she's entangled in the Church of the Eternal Moment—a million-dollar religious scam built around a twelve-year-old channeler and the voice of a man who has been dead for a millennium. When Sally turns up dead, Simeon knows he's become the next target of a very flesh-and-blood entity waiting in the back alleys of sin and salvation to give him a brutal look at the four last things: death, judgment, heaven, and hell—revelations he could definitely live without.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Hallinan has a genuine ability to write effective prose, engaging repartee, [and] sharp and witty characterizations.” Washington Post Book World
“Terrific, well-crafted, thoroughly satisfying…updates Raymond Chandler’s vision of life in Los Angeles through Grist’s sardonic, often hilarious observations…leaves one looking forward to Hallinan’s future endeavors.” Los Angeles Herald-Tribune
“Simeon Grist, former professor of English at UCLA and fledgling LA private eye, makes his debut in this clever mystery…Televangelism, brainwashing, research into the early nineteenth-century diaspora of new American religions, and a most unusual ally lead Grist to the denouement of this very satisfying mystery.” Publishers Weekly
“Smoothly plotted story, crisp dialogue, and excellent characterizations…The book never falters, sustaining suspense and interest throughout…a sure winner.” Booklist
