This noir novel set in Hollywood exposes more than the underbelly of the movie industry it features some of the base characteristics of people that the protagonist Marley has the misfortune to be involved with. In particular the book seems to feast on the varieties of exploiters you should pray you will never meet. I hesitate to say much about the plot as I don't want to spoil anything for the reader but I will say that a number of times the book actually made me feel quite ill. If you appreciate a raw emotional examination of fathers and their children and of human beings in general, you will enjoy the book. If not, proceed at your own risk as you'll find little in the way of the goodness of human beings within.

(Note: I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.)

The description of this book sounded like my type of book. Fast-paced thriller with lots of twists. Sadly, this was not the case. Several times I had to stop and take a breather, but having received a complementary copy to review I decided to finish it. It would have been a great disservice to the author if I had not.

What I did like about the book was the imagery and the overall writing style of the author. I could vividly picture each scene in my mind as I read; truly the mark of a great writer. The storyline also placed the reader into the mind of each character. Marley, especially, was someone with whom we can all relate. A down-on-his luck individual just trying to make one day at a time and live out his dreams.

The chapters of the book that he was in were my favorite and I looked forward to his story. Had the book been written entirely from Marley's perspective I would have given it 5 stars.

Now for why I gave the book 3 stars (I wish I could have bumped it to 3.5 stars):
Some of the content of the novel was too much for my weak and sensitive stomach to handle. Because the writing gave such an intense description of one of the characters and his lifestyle (I don't want to give anything away) I got really upset and had to stop a few times. I should also mention that I am a mom to 2 young daughters which is why some of the chapters were especially difficult for me.

Having said all that I can see this being made into a movie by Tarantino. It would make a great screenplay and I can even picture who the actors would be.

Marley is down on his luck. He's gone from living the high life in a fancy house in the Hollywood Hills, to a condo in Brentwood, an apartment in Mar Vista, the backseat of his Mustang, and finally, thanks to a friend giving him a free room in exchange for handywork, Formica Manor, a once grand home now split into single rooms a block and a half from the beach. The best and only thing he has going for him is his 16 year old daughter, who he rarely gets to see as her mother, Marley's ex-wife, calls the shots. An out of the blue phone call from a Buzz, Marley's old business associate and the reason he is down to nothing in his life, will change everything. Buzz needs Marley's help finding his "star" Madison Colfax and he has three days to do it.

Milo came to California to get away and has known he was destined for greatness since he was little and realized his father was scared of him. After leaving a tatoo shop, he notices a girl getting ready to steal a purse, offers to buy it for her if she goes to lunch with him. That's the deal...just have lunch. But things aren't always what they seem as Milo has taken her back to his place to be a part of his sick and twisted plans.

People are not always what they say they are in the backdrop of Hollywood. Where The Sun Don't Shine takes you into the dirty world of the Hollywood scene, where everyone is out for themselves and anyone will do anything for a buck. Where dreams are made but most shatter or never even come true. How you can be on top of world one minute and barely getting by the next. This book sucked me in from the first chapter and didn't let go until the very last word. I highly recommend this one and really hope to see more from this author soon!

I did not finish this book.Too graphic for me. There is a scene of a porno shoot...yuck! But what ended my reading was when the main character's daughter [16 years old] became part of this sexually explicit book. I also could not read the pages involving Milo...just skipped over those. I have no clue as why he was part of the plot.

I received this book for free to review and then I almost forgot about it. When I did find it, I started reading it and stopped 2 or 3 times before actually finishing it. It was definitely the rougher side of the street type of story and quite graphic, as well. I don't think I liked it, but not because of anything the author did. I just didn't like the story. I did finish it, because as an avid mystery reader, I had to know how it ended, and I refuse to skip to the end. Well written, just not my type of story. You'll have to read and decide for yourself on this one.

This book doesn't even deserve a review. It was the worst book I have ever read. How anyone could waste their time with such negativity is beyond me. The "f" word was a good part of the book and don't tell me it made the story. If I could somehow have given a minus rating I certainly would have.
