But Angel Veronchek is convinced that the voice belongs to his mysterious and beautiful new neighbor, Angela--and that she is terrified for her life. So begins Angels dangerous and desperate quest to uncover what happened to Angela, a woman he loves and has become obsessed with, but about whom he knows nearly nothing.
Angel has his secrets, too. The son of one of Hollywoods most powerful producers, Angel has renounced a world of wealth and glamour to live a lonely existence in the seedy parts of Los Angeles with an unfinished screenplay, a ready supply of drugs, and Blade Runner looping constantly on his television.
The exotic Angela acts as kindling for Angels static existence. It is her arrival, and her eerie disappearance, that knocks his solitary, reclusive life off-balance, and plunges him into the sinister world of Los Angeles nights, a world of secrets that arent meant to be told, and people who arent meant to be found. ; 1.4 x 9.3 x 6.3 Inches; 352 pages; p; Signed by Author
