The Dark Streets

(2006)
(The ninth book in the Jack Liffey series)
A novel by

 
 
The latest mystery in the critically acclaimed Los Angeles Times best-selling series takes private investigator Jack Liffey to LA's exotic Koreatown, where a young film student, Soon-Lin Kim, has apparently gone missing. But Jack is not the only one looking for Soon-Lin. Her association with a sinister militant group of radical Asians has also set Homeland Security in her pursuit. Again, bizarre details and compounding mysteries envelop Jack, and ultimately he finds himself under torturously intense interrogation at a secret compound in the desert-and ill-prepared for a climax as explosive as the violent lightning storm approaching on the horizon.

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"The landscape of Los Angeles, both actually and metaphorically, has been deconstructed by writers from Chandler to Didion, but never quite as artfully as John Shannon does it." - James Crumley

"Shannon has written an intelligent, surprising book, found the heart of his working-class characters, and delivered a first-rate thriller in the bargain." - George Pelecanos
