in a tight red skirt and purple spandex bustier,
Lupe Ramos emerges from the LA jailhouse into
a moonlit and breezy night, ready to begin
the first day of the rest of her life.
Whitney Logan, Esq., is parked outside,
waiting, hoping to surprise Lupe and give
her a ride home. More important, she wants
to say how sorry she is for all the trouble
she caused a year ago and try to make it
up to her now. But, as always happens in
this unpredictable city, things don’t
exactly turn out as planned.
agrees to the ride, but doesn’t have
much patience for Whitney’s apologies.
They’ve each gone different directions—and
now the only thing they share is the dream
of making a fresh start in the hip melting
pot that is LA—the town where ordinary
people become movie stars, and everyone
goes along, eating Thai food and listening
to salsa music…right?
The City of Angels is sizzling and the pair
is soon back in the hot seat. Whitney sets
out to reunite Lupe with her son—but
first they have to find him. Lupe’s
brother, Hector, a marginally famous boxer,
has parked the kid with his new girlfriend
in the backstreets of Koreatown. When Whitney
and Lupe show up to reclaim him, they find
themselves in the middle of an armed robbery.
And with another corpse on their hands.
Spiraling deep into the dark side of Lost
Angeles, the streetwise duo of smart blond
attorney Whitney Logan and her chicana sister-in-arms,
Lupe Ramos, team up once again and soon
the vibrant reds of Koreatown turn bloody
as the killer faces his toughest, and most
deceptively alluring, enemy yet.
