LA burglar Junior Bender has (unfortunately) developed a reputation as a competent private investigator for crooks. Now, Junior is being bullied into proving aging music industry mogul Vinnie DiGaudio is innocent of the murder of a nasty tabloid journalist he'd threatened to kill a few times. It doesn't help that the dead journalist's widow is a pretty lady - and one trying to get Junior to mix pleasure with business. Just as the investigation is spiralling out of control, Junior's landlady begs him to solve the disappearance of her daughter...

Think of combining Henry James and Robin Williams and setting the result loose on a romp through the nooks and crannies of Los Angeles in the person of Junior Bender, a burglar for our own times. The somewhat strange title quickly makes sense as Hallinan weaves a story that involves our cultural penchant for trying to replicate big successes. I really did laugh out loud and even read a few of the passages out loud to my wife. Junior is hard not to like. It was a treat to read. I will be back for more.

While in my mind, Junior Bender is no Poke Rafferty, this mystery is very entertaining and has a great neo-Noir/underbelly of Hollywood feel -- fans of Elmore Leonard will enjoy.
