Description
LAPD veteran "Hollywood Nate" Weiss could take or leave the opulence of the Hills, but he wouldn't say no to a little onscreen fame. In Joseph Wambaugh's fourth Hollywood Station thriller, Nate may get his shot when he catches the attention of B-list director Rudy Ressler—and the roving eye of Ressler's botoxed fiancée Leona Brueger.

"Good news for fans of the Hollywood Station trilogy that was supposed to have ended with Hollywood Moon. Now here comes Hollywood Hills, extending another golden opportunity to ride with the uniformed crew at what must be the most colorful cop-shop under the sun.... Wambaugh salts the narrative with variously funny, sad and thoughtful anecdotes featuring a cast of characters we've come to treasure: handsome Hollywood Nate, the surfer cops Flotsam and Jetsam, and veterans like Viv Daley and Della Ravelle, burned by experience, but conscientiously training the next generation to face the fire."—NYTBR

"Critics compared aspects of Joseph Wambaugh's latest novel to James Joyce's Finnegan's Wake, Raymond Chandler's noir classics, and—wait for it—the work of British historian Edward Gibbon.... The kernel of truth in each is based on Wambaugh's reputation as a crime writer's crime writer. In fact, he's a master of language, human nature, and narrative pyrotechnics rivaled these days only by James Ellroy, particularly in the dissolute-lifestyles genre that he commandeers in the Hollywood Station books. Wambaugh has not only managed to keep his edge; he's continued to hone his craft. For a crime writer 40 years in the game, that's cause for celebration."—Bookmarks Magazine
