With a backdrop of greedy corporations, beautiful women andpunishing Santa Ana winds, Get Lucky is a wild ride through the uneven streets of Hollywood at the dawn of the 21st century. Christian Wiley, once a reputable police detective, now swerves between personal demons, Hollywood's decadent elite and the bruised hustlers who have been kicked in the teeth and into the gutter. "A hundred thousand bucks, all for killing an animal with less natural intelligence than a barnyard pig." What would you do?For Christian Wiley the answer is simple. It's time to pull up his threadbare cashmere socks, push some bourbon through his teeth and dust off his pistol. Either that, or watch the vampires at the bank dig their teeth into the deed for his house. A modern tale of immorality and excess, Get Lucky is a noir fiction that should feel right at home on your bookshelf somewhere between Raymond Carver and Raymond Chandler. "Not since The Grifters has someone so perfectly crafted a hybrid of modern & hard-boiled genres. Los Angeles glimmers like a piece of coal mashed into a smoky diamond. Get Lucky is a heartless & hopeful tale just aching to be turned into a movie." John Doe Of the band "X"
