Great read. Lynda LaPlante is a good author. Read a year ago, so can't really remember, but it was on my "keep" shelf until that shelf got too full.

Ex-cop Lorraine Page is struggling to keep her detective agency afloat while dealing with her own personal demons, when she lands a big case that could really put her on the map. You can't help but pull for Lorraine to get herself together, although sometimes she's hard to like. I thought Cold Shoulder and Cold Blood were good, solid reads.

A former cop and alcoholic, Lorraine Page has lost her husband, her kids, and most of her work. Now she is struggling to get back on her feet with her new detective agency. And when a fading move star's daughter disappears, Lorraine is given another chance-an offer of a cool million dollars-if she finds the girl, dead or alive. The trail of clues stretches from the seedy streets of L.A. to the steamy underbelly of New Orleanls. But the real peril lies in Lorraine's dangerous attraction to Robert Caley, the girl'ls father. With a case this important-and this sinister-Lorraine can't afford to commit the cardinal sin of private investigation: getting romantically involved with the main suspect.
