Description

Jimmy O'Brien hasn't been a criminal defense attorney for long, but he's all too familiar with the seedy side of 1970s Los Angeles. When the religious fanatic he's scheduled to defend escapes custody prior to a murder trial, Jimmy follows the bare-bones clues as far as he can. An uncomfortable interview with the boy's mother leads him to a corrupt church community in the Valley. But the more questions he asks, the more mysterious the situation becomes. Certain that the boy has returned to a boarding home for troubled youth out in a junction town near Barstow, Jimmy explores the town himself – only to find that the residents seem more intent on keeping secrets than making friends. With the help of his incorrigible legal assistant, Rita, and his extravagant friend and private eye, Sol Silverman, Jimmy persists in the search for his escaped client - and the truth behind his disappearance. He gradually discovers that the boarding home is far from what it seems, the townspeople are not who they appear to be, and the corruption of greed has gone to extravagant – and perhaps murderous – lengths.

 Due to a Spambomb attack, our contact form is having issues!  

A notification about our contact form inquiries:  A few weeks back,  we endured a spam-bomb attack.  We received literally tens of thousands of emails, via our contact form on the CONTACT page.  Our web guys leapt into action, and put in a "ReCaptcha" element, to try to stop the spam bombs.   And it worked, hooray. However, it apparently also caused a glitch, in which we have NOT received all the submitted inquiries, from real customers and prospective customers. We apologize for this and we're in the process of fixing it. In the meantime, if you do not hear from us same-day, or at the absolute latest, within 24 hours, please email us directly, not using the CONTACT form, but the email address on our CONTACT page in the "How to Reach Us" column, thank you. We apologize for any inconvenience and we hope it's all resolved shortly. 

Thank you for your understanding.
