LAUGHING DOG
Hardboiled private eye Leo Bloodworth and his self-appointed partner, fifteen-year-old Serendipity Dahlquist, are back in a wild and deadly new mystery that’s every bit as brilliant and memorable as SLEEPING DOG. This time, Leo and Serendipity are on the trail of a teenage runaway and a missing pair of sapphire earrings, two seemingly separate, increasingly dangerous cases rife with gang members, designer drugs, killer birds …and a terrorist plot that could plunge sunny Southern California into a permanent nuclear winter.
