Last Looks, by Howard Michael Gould (Dutton, 2019)

A former LA detective, now living as a minimalistic recluse, is called in to act as a PI when a TV star is accused of murder. Sprightly Hollywood neo-noir with comic elements and an engaging approach to Los Angeles. Breezy and pacy: a fun entertainment with an interesting lead character in Charlie Waldo. Recommended.

My own books here, if that’s your thing. Newest is noir thriller East of England.
