Alice in La-La Land

Alice in La-La Land

(The second book in the Whistler series)
A novel by

Publisher's Weekly
Campbell's In La-La Land We Trust received rave reviews and this maze-like sequel should, too. ''La-La Land' is a Los Angeles area that private-eye Whistler knows well, turf for male and female whores, drunks and druggies. When lovely Nell Twelvetrees, a stranger in La-La, asks Whistler to be her bodyguard, he gladly accepts, and not just for the fee. He is captivated by Nell and eager to protect her from her husband Roger, a millionaire TV comic. Assaults on Whistler and the woman follow, as she tries to force Roger to settle a fortune on her during divorce negotiations. Also involved in these events are Jenny, the comic's lethal daughter, and her eerie boyfriend. A crooked cop, battered hookers and other types figure in the cunning plot. No one is what he or she seems, especially the Alice of the title. She plays a startling role in this chronicle by an author who shines as a satirist but creates feeling in the reader for even the worst of his debauched characters.

Library Journal
The environs of Los Angeles are as much a part of Campbell's new Whistler novel as are the many and varied street types, the over-paid celebrities and their hangers-on. Whistler is hired to protect Nell Twelvetrees, third wife of an aging TV personality with a yen for under-age hookers and a set of psychological problems straight from a textbook. Brimming with unexpected action, hidden clues, and Campbell's great storytelling, this sequel to In La-La Land We Trust (1986) is a treat of smooth prose with a jolt at the end. JV
