Surprisingly funny, with a lot of twists. Not at all what I expected from Steven Bochco.

I was very disapppointed in this book. With an author of Steve Bocho, I expected a police drama at least since he wrote Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law, NYPD Blue, etc. I got through 3 chapters and tossed it aside in disgust. It is full of nasty, filthy language and graphic sexual imagery that was neither necessary or added a thing to his story. I don't recommend it but I am sure there are those who would enjoy it despite the language and sex.

Steven Bocho: screenwriter for NYPD Blue, LA Law, Hill Street Blues - what more could you ask for? It's funny and cynical, written by a hollywood insider.

When a Hollywood scriptwriter with a bad block witnesses a murder, he decides he will turn it into a million-dollar script, but he doesn't count on the number of sharks swimming around in the California sea.

I was really put off at the beginning of this book by the language. But that slowed down as the story twisted and turned to an unforeseen (at least to me) ending.

"There used to be a writer by the name of Merle Miller, who wrote that people in HOllywood are always touching you--not because they like you, but because they want to see how soft you are before they eat you alive."

So begins this seductive and surprising novel by two-time Edgar Award-winning sriter Steven Bochco, in which a down-on-his-luck screenwriater named bobby Newman tries to turn a brutal murder into his next movie payday.

Surprising book . i liked it

Very unusual writing angle in this book and the more I read, the more I liked it. Picked this book up just on a wim and glad I did. Very much enjoyed it..not like any of the books I normally read. I would select a book by this author again.
