A Spenser novel set in LA. He is hired by a TV news station to be the bodyguard
for a pretty reporter investigating ties between the mob and a movie company. He
cheats on Susan by screwing the reporter. He fails to protect her and she is
murdered. He beats up the men who killed her and holds them hostage for the
police. The DA wants to prosecute him to the full extent of the law. A local
detective sympathizes with Spenser and drives him to the airport. The dialog
between Spenser and the girl reporter at the beginning of the story is funny.
