My Summer reading book report.

Book Report.
This book can easily be described as a classic 1950s Noir. A private Investigator back in 1952 drives down from the Bay Area to Hollywood visiting a love interest. After PI Archer is introduced to his girlfriend’s woman friend Private Investigator Archer is hired by the girlfriend’s friend who believes someone is trying to kill her. While investigating this claim, Private Investigator Archer encounters, drug smuggling, a dead body, several trips to a dive bar in LA’s Chinatown, meeting some of Hollywood’s elite and not so elite, an air trip to Las Vegas encountering the mob, and several threats to PI Archer’s life which includes being shot at and two big bonks on the head. What more could anybody want in a book?
Book title: Dream Town by David Baldacci, mystery and suspense fiction published 2022.
Here is the Library of Congress annotation:
“Private investigator and World War II veteran Aloysius Archer heads to Los Angeles to ring in the new year with old friend and aspiring actress Liberty Callahan But their evening is interrupted by screenwriter Eleanor Lamb, who fears for her life. Archer takes the case, but Eleanor soon
disappears after a body is found in her home”
Once again, the book is ‘Dream Town’ by David Baldacci. Here is my comment: I liked it. Read it. You’ll like it too.
