Connelly says: "I never knew Mercedes Lambert
(Douglas Anne Munson) but I knew her books. I read them all and
loved them all. I loved them most because in the crowded field of
authors who chose Los Angeles as the place of their fiction, she
was unique. She was brave. She kept her head down and wrote what

Kellerman says: "Ghosttown is a noir
masterpiece. One of the most evocative LA crime novels ever written."
