Created by Robert Campbell (1927-2000)

LA's down-on-his-luck private eye WHISTLER hangs out at Gentry's Coffee Shop and has been known to philosophize over a cup of java or two, in this dark, savvy series with Chandleresque flourishes that was just building up a (well-deserved) audience when the author passed away.


  • "Dizzyingly, devilishly wonderful. . . . Under the parody, under the hip, slick, baroque prose style . . . Campbell has etched a dreadful, seductive picture of a city. . . ."
    (Los Angeles Times on
    In La-LA Land We Trust)
