Hardboiled private eye Leo Bloodworth and his self-appointed partner, fifteen-year-old Serendipity Dahlquist, are back in a wild and deadly new mystery that’s every bit as brilliant and memorable as SLEEPING DOG, a New York Times Book of the Year, a Nero Wolfe Award winner, and a finalist for the Edgar, Shamus and Anthony Awards.
“Wonderful! Don’t Wait for the Movie!” Plauboy Magazine
“Sensational writing. Mordant wit. An intricate crime puzzle. And a duo of private eyes as wonky and offbeat as the mind of Dick Lochte” – Harlan Ellison
“Few capture California better . . . His story intrigued . . . Enjoyable and breezy.” Kirkus Reviews
“Dancingly macabre, packed with perils, pungent with humor.” The Sunday Times (London)
“An intelligent, playful, knowledgeable writer . . . Lochte has a great gift for the grotesquerie.” Los Angeles Times
LAUGHING DOG is available from Amazon.
DICK LOCHTE is the bestselling author of over a dozen novels of crime and suspense, including SLEEPING DOG which won the Nero Wolfe Award, was nominated for the Edgar, the Shamus and the Anthony, and was named one of the 100 Favorite Mysteries of the Century by the Independent Booksellers Association.
