GIVEAWAY - Hollywood Moon by Joseph Wambaugh - 5 WINNERS!!


The cops of Hollywood Station don’t police your typical cop beat. Midgetws-for-hire, meth tweakers, steroid-pumped monsters, costumed crackheads, drag queens and trannies populate the boulevards and back streets of Los Angeles’ most surreal precinct. Even dead hobos writing checks from beyond the grave and an intimate assault with a Barbie doll are all in a day’s (or night’s) work.


The cops themselves aren’t exactly typical either. There’s Hollywood Nate, who still dreams of movie stardom but is worried that he’s too good-looking to be a character actor; Dana Vaughn, a tough no-nonsense cop who can’t stand the fact that her fellow officer Leon Callaway has turned from chauvinist pig to guardian angel since she saved his life; and Aaron Sloane, who has fallen head over heels in love with his beautiful, more experienced partner Sheila.

But there’s a darker side to Hollywood’s weirdness. All that glitz and glamour provide the perfect cover for the city’s underworld, and in a place where anything goes, even small-time crime can easily get out of control. Fraudster Dewey Gleason and his chain-smoking, wisecracking wife Eunice--the real mastermind of the pair--have a nice line in mail-box theft and stealing credit cards. But when they hatch an audacious kidnap plan without knowing that their hired help lives a double life as a serial sex attacker, things start to get very dangerous indeed.

Wambaugh is the master of the modern police novel... full of the grit, humor and truth that makes it impossible to put down” Michael Connelly

Slick, stylish and a hoot” Daily Mirror

Wambaugh’s personalities and dialogue are utterly convincing. No one does this kind of book better” Sunday Telegraph

Hilarious black comedy... The cops are all fabulous characters with an enviable turn of phrase and a way with street language that just zings off the page” Daily Express

Deliriously entertaining fiction... rich in incident, anecdote and, especially, great characters” Observer
