THE ORDER CAME STRAIGHT FROM THE TOP- “FIND HER FAST, MAKE HER TALK AND GET RID OF THE BODY.”

Gangsters have seized control of 1947 Los Angeles spreading violence, intimidation and murder; from nightclubs and boxing matches to organizing unions in the movies. Police and politicians are on their payroll; prostitution, illegal drugs and gambling rampant.

Matt Thornton P.I. forms an unofficial gangster squad to prevent the takeover of a girlfriend’s strip club in San Pedro, another friend’s saloon in the heart of L.A. and a western movie studio in Simi Valley. He’s also hired to investigate a suspicious jewelry theft from a wealthy oil executive in Palos Verdes. All leads point to a body in the Arizona desert, a connection to Hollywood celebrities and Margo Powers, “The Blonde with Ice-Blue Eyes”.

“The Blonde with the Ice-Blue Eyes is an engaging, tightly written mystery that could’ve come off the typewriter of Raymond Chandler… a welcomed return to those wonderful hard-boiled detective novels published during crime fiction’s golden age…”—Tony Piazza: Hollywood actor and author of Tom Logan mysteries- inc., Murder Will out, Anything Short of Murder & Bullitt Points-Steve McQueen

"Post-war L.A. shows some leg in this tough-guy tale… More grit and lust than the seedy side of Venice Beach."—Ben East: thriller author of Patchwork, Two Pumps for the Body Man

“A rip-roaring gangster vs. good, tough guy novel set in the late 1940s. A detective with all the right connections and a damsel (or six) in distress… This one’s a keeper!”—Donald Whitman: Author of Fatal Healing, Dig Deeper, Dig Wider and Isle of Deceit

Matthew Thornton… handles the trouble thrust before him—thugs, mob takeovers, blackmail schemes, and kidnappings—with a dexterity and fearlessness that is marvelous.--Vicki Salloum: Author of Candyland

“Channeling Raymond Chandler, David Thompson gets Los Angeles, its people, and the tough-guy lingo of the 1940s pitch perfect…”—Caroline Taylor: author of Loose
