If you have ever lived in Los Angeles, and moved on in your life to other climes, this little story of murder, mayhem, and the black-shirted LAPD, will make you feel right at home, and most of the events and circumstances in which they occurred will seem very ordinary and just like another of those days you spent in La La Land. But if you have never lived here for any period of time, you may find the whole thing just too bazaar and too fantastic, but take it from me this story is as ordinary in this land of make believe as the rising of the sun and its setting. For those reasons, and no matter where you have ever lived, you will find that Alvarez has caught the essence of the place. And for men(sorry ladies, chick lit it ain't), what man, married or not, hasn't felt his significant other just doesn't understand him? After all, he only had to impersonate a high school student, bust a drug ring, then learn how to dress and act like a woman! Poor Victor, no matter what he does, he feels he just can't make his woman happy! The story, from the land of the valley girls, the San Fernando Valley, has it all. The pages are filled with real people, somehow getting things done. This is a very fun read, and the humor is a salve for the more shocking events that are part of Victor Espinoza's daily work.
