Not his best

I loved his Hollywood Station series, but this was a little dated. The dialog felt very heavy bogged down with metaphor and simile instead of actual conversation. In all the other stories I've read by Wambaug it didn't seem crass or vulgar for the sake of a laugh.

Overall I did enjoy the story and pace, he does set a scene nicely I just wish the dialog was as crisp as the Station series. The intersecting stories, character development and underlying humor saved it for me, but Lynne was unlikable, plain and simple.

When an author is capable of writing like "The Onion Field" and "Choirboys" (both very bleak looks at humanity), its hard to believe the same author wrote this book.

A beach listen, not much more.
