"I spent a lot of lonely years dreaming of Philip Marlowe instead of living my own life."
-- from Beware Beware
Scrappy smart ass Asian-American JUNIPER SONG is a twenty-something wannabe private detective (her childhood hero was Philip Marlowe) still learning the ropes, who eventually goes to work for the Lindley & Flores agency in LA's Koreatown district, in a series of novels by Steph Cha, who also makes her home in Los Angeles.
And it shows -- Juniper's a nice mix of Veronica Mars and Kinsey Millhone, but it's her audacious deep dive into the always turbulent, always fluid multicultural swamp (Amenians! Koreans! Movie people!) of the City of Angels, reminescent of Walter Mosley or John Shannon's Jack Liffey that makes this series one to watch.
