Private investigator Mark Taylor receives a call from the manager of a pricey Hollywood hotel offering him a job. That phone call throws him into a swirling murder case with many knots and angles as Taylor is asked to find the murderer of one of the hotel’s residents. His task becomes even more complicated as someone tries to frame him for the deaths of two hotel staff linked to the case. As the P.I. works his way through the layers of the case and finds that his own life is also in danger. Several suspects pop up, including the elegant Meredith Morgan who has Taylor’s heart in her palms, the shady Hymie Hillman, a Hollywood actor and even the hotel manager. With seemingly unrelated fragments of clues lying around, Taylor must piece them together and find the killer before someone else dies.

Dyer’s writing style gives the book a distinct but appealing feel. He uses shocking comparisons and metaphors that were consistently creative and intriguing.
