The cops of Hollywood Station are still over-worked, bound by red tape and hobbled by political correctness. Crows (Community Relations Officers) have it easy handling "the sissie beat": domestic disputes, over-excited paparazzi, and chronic complainers. At least, that's the way it seems. But in Hollywood - where Mickey Mouse is a crack addict and Marilyn Monroe is a man - things are rarely what they seem. So when two crows find themselves caught up with bombshell Margot Aziz, they think she's just a cute hill bunny. In fact, she's setting them up so she can pull off the perfect murder and walk away with her ex-husband's ill-won fortune. But Margot isn't the only one with a deadly plan.This hotly anticipated sequel to Hollywood Station is narrated once again by master of dialogue Kerry Shale, who captures the frenetic life of the Los Angeles station with his trademark verve and brio.
