Baker & Taylor
Jack Liffrey's new girlfriend persuades him to investigate the disappearance of her niece, who has fled a reservation in the Owens Valley to escape abuse, but as he follows her trail, he finds himself increasingly drawn into L.A.'s thriving porn industry.

Perseus Publishing
Jack Liffey's new girlfriend, Gloria Martinez, a police sergeant of Paiute-Latino heritage, talks him into looking into the disappearance of her beautiful 18-year-old niece, Luisa, from a tiny reservation in the Owens Valley. To escape abuse, the girl had threatened to run away to L.A.'s porn industry, and in fact does become caught up in the phone sex business, then hostessing, and finally the trashy business of videotaping the homeless engaged in wildly dangerous stunts. Luisa is fought over by a motley band of lowlifes and would-be rescuers, including the Jamaican Trevor "Terror" Pennycooke, whom Jack knows from an earlier case. The hunt for Luisa comes together in the Malibu Hills, where a bumbling army of suitors and rescuers touch off a gun battle and dangerous firestorm that sweeps Jack and everyone else ahead of it down the Malibu Hills toward the ocean.

Jack Liffey's new girlfriend, Gloria Ramirez, a police sergeant of Paiute-Latino heritage, convinces him to look into the disappearance of her beautiful eighteen-year-old niece Luisa, who vanished from her tiny reservation in the Owens Valley. To escape abuse, Luisa threatened to run away to L.A.'s porn industry, and in fact she becomes caught up in the equally seamy phone sex business, then hostessing, and finally in the trashy business of videotaping the homeless performing wildly dangerous stunts for cash.
Luisa is fought over by a motley band of low-lifes, crooks, and would-be rescuers, including the Jamaican Trevor "Terror" Pennycooke, whom Jack knows from an earlier case. The hunt for Luisa - equal parts sordid and screwball - reaches its zenith in the Malibu Hills, where a bumbling army of suitors and rescuers touch off a gun battle and a dangerous firestorm that sweeps Jack and everyone else ahead of it screaming down the Malibu hills straight toward the Pacific ocean.
