When forty-year-old cop Winnie Farlowe lost his shield, he lost the only protection he had. Ever since, hes been fighting a bad back, fighting the bottle, fighting his conscience. But now hes in for a special fight. Never before has he come up against anyone like Tess Binder. Shes a stunningly beautiful, sexually spirited three-time divorcee from Newport Beach — capital of Californias Golden Orange, where wallets are fat, bikinis are skimpy, and cosmetic surgery is one sure way to a billionaires bank account.

Nearly a year ago Tess Binders father washed up on the beach with a bullet in his ear. The coroner called it suicide, but to Tess it means the fear of her own fate. And Winnie Farlowe is a man willing to follow wherever she leads — straight into the juicy pulp of the Golden Orange, a world where money is everything, but nothing adds up . . . where death and chicanery flourish amidst ranches, mansions, and yachting parties. In his long-awaited new novel, best-selling author Joseph Wambaugh combines harrowing suspense, scathing humor, and a moving portrait of a man on the brink of self-destruction.
