In a rundown house in Santa Monica, Mrs. Samuel Lawrence presses fifty crumpled bills into Lew Archer's hand and asks him to find her wandering daughter, Galatea. Described as ' crazy for men' and without discrimination, she was last seen driving off with small-time gangster Joe Tarantine, a hophead hood with a rep for violence. Archer traces the hidden trail from San Francisco slum alleys to the luxury of Palm Springs, traveling through an urban wilderness of drugs and viciousness. As the bodies begin to pile up, he finds that even angel faces can mask the blackest of hearts. Filled with dope, delinquents and murder, this is classic Macdonald and one of his very best in the Lew Archer series.

Ross MacDonald, whose real name was Kenneth Millar, was born on December 13, 1915, in Los Gatos, California, to Canadian parents. He received an undergraduate degree from the University of Western Ontario and a master's degree and a doctoral degree from the University of Michigan. During World War II, he served as a communications officer on a United States Navy escort carrier. His first book, The Dark Tunnel, was published in 1944 under the name John MacDonald. He was best known for the Lew Archer Mystery series. Two of the books in the series, The Moving Target renamed Harper and The Drowning Pool, were adapted into movies starring Paul Newman. MacDonald died of Alzheimer's disease on July 11, 1983 at the age of 67.
