Abstract:

"Aloysius Archer travels to 1950s California to apprentice with a legendary private eye and former FBI agent but immediately finds himself involved in a scandal"--

The 1950s are on the horizon, and Archer is in dire need of a fresh start. He hops on a bus and begins the long journey out west to California, where rumor has it there is money to be made for someone who's hard-working, lucky, a criminal, or all three. At a stop in Reno, a stroke of fortune delivers him a wad of cash and an eye-popping blood-red 1939 Delahaye convertible, plus a companion for the final leg of the journey: aspiring actress Liberty Callahan. When the two arrive in Bay Town, California, Archer discovers that the hordes of people who flocked there seeking fame and fortune landed in a false paradise that instead caters to their worst addictions and fears. Archer apprentices with legendary private eye and former FBI agent Willie Dash, and finds himself in the thick of a potential scandal: a blackmail case involving a wealthy well-connected politician running for mayor that soon spins into something even more sinister. -- adapted from jacket.
