Vicious pimps, suspicious cops, Japanese gangsters, Hollywood mega-moguls and all-powerful demons out of the pages of ancient mythology turn Marty's - a sometime TV star cum low-rent LA private eye - world inside out. When he is hired to find a missing prostitute, the race is on to stay alive.



Praise for this book

"Part supernatural thriller, part hardboiled detective yarn, part comic Hollywood novel and all page-turner. Celestial Dogs hits a bulls-eye on every target at which it takes aim." - Peter Atkins

"An acerbically funny collision between Hollywood lowlife and the gods and demons of Japanese mythology that's as stylishly gritty as Dashiell Hammett. Jay Russell is a major new talent." - Paul McAuley
