Complete Dogtown Trilogy now in print for the first time.

With the 2007 posthumous publication of Ghosttown, and the recent reprint edition of Dogtown / Soultown, Mercedes Lambert's complete Dogtown Trilogy is finally in print. Read more.

Michael 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 she wanted to write, explored what she wanted to explore. It didn’t matter who would publish it or who would read it. These were the stories she had to tell—if only to herself. In doing so she gave us characters we hadn’t seen before and took us to places we had never known."

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