"The book doesn’t merely look at the sexy components of Los Angeles history, either ― it engages with issues of rape, feminism, race relations, labor movements and more."―LA Weekly
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... Nope, not talking about France during the Revolution. We're talking about Los Angeles...in the 1970s."―KPCC's "Take Two"

From the Author
Los Angeles in the 1970s
is an anthology and revisit to that decade in the City of Angels as seen through the eyes of twenty-nine separate contributing authors. My chapter, "The Snake and Bake Murder" tells a true-crime story I investigated in 1974 while I was assigned as a rookie homicide detective at LAPD's Hollywood Homicide Division. That real life murder case had it all, Hollywood hills swinging sex pad, drugs, kidnapping, murder all centered around a beautiful Femme Fatale.
