Loser's Town

Author: Daniel Depp

Narrator: Don Leslie

Unabridged: 10 hr 27 min

Synopsis

This darkly comic debut thriller introduces David Spandau, a Hollywood private eye whose laconic wit and keen insider's sensibility are put to the test when he is hired by a young, rising actor at the center of a filmmaking-and blackmailing-scheme gone wrong. Loser's Town is charged with the elements of all great L.A. noir-crackling dialogue, fast-paced plot, and seedy, jaded characters-and Depp brings a few new tricks of his own to the genre: hilarious characterizations of sadistic talent agents, ambitious mobsters intent on breaking into showbiz, and the small-time hustlers just trying to eke out a modest living and keep out of the limelight. Like Elmore Leonard's Get Shorty and James Ellroy's L.A. Confidential, Daniel Depp's Loser's Town is sure to find its place in the dark and delightful world of L.A. noir.
