He’s landed in the City of Angels seeking the truth about the death of his father, an abstract expressionist painter whose work has fallen out of favour. Ever soon discovers that revenge doesn’t come easy.
But then, by chance, he meets the beautiful, enigmatic Lomita Nairn, a woman almost fifty years his senior, his world is changed for ever and he sees what he must do to save them both.
Part noir-thriller, part oddball-romance, part philosophical investigation into the nature of the human soul, Lomita For Ever is rich with wisdom and sympathy.
'A tremendous novel, written with great style and assurance. A compelling, edgy, noir narrative recounted in a tone of voice that is at once audacious, coolly knowing, highly observant and wryly funny. And as a bonus a remarkable, dark portrait of Los Angeles city of damaged angels.' – William Boyd
