In this book, the protagonist character is a transplanted Easterner known as Saxon, who is finding his ways as an actor besides being an investigator and a runner. This is a novel that Roberts writes after being convinced by Cleveland that it was appropriate to write the book in such settings. This came just after Les Roberts returned from Los Angeles for a short term job back in 1986.
In the book, we also find out that Saxon is very solvent between his role as an investigating agency and running. Saxon shows how kind he is at the famous pulp detective writer Buck Weldon. His decision of helping the person is more evident even meeting Weldon’s tall Blonde daughter. There is a baffling that is going on and this involves a professor and a major dealer of cocaine in the private eye literature. This, therefore, implies that Saxon has a great task to attend to and the investigation takes him to Palm Springs from Westwood. He later returns to San Fernando Valley, just before the cruel culmination in the backwater village in Mexican on the Baja Peninsula.
When a bullet is fired and he narrowly misses it, the secretary of the detective is kind of uneasy and he thinks he is at great risk. This is a smart and entertaining story that is full of beautiful women, buxom, gangsters and hard cops. You will also realize that the writer uses hidden identity and this enables him to write his literary work seriously. Les Roberts also tells us how he was able to fictionally discover both the soul and the heart of his best people in life.
