Murder in Beverly Hills

A killer is on the loose in Beverly Hills. Late at night, as moguls, starlets, actors, and rock stars head home after a night on the town, a Corvette pulls up beside a Rolls-Royce at a traffic light. A gun goes off--and another of Hollywood's elite lies dead.

Beverly Hills cowers in terror. It's up to Police Lt. Nicky Rachmaninoff--reluctant cop, ex-hippie, divorced father, and the mean­est left-handed jazz pianist in all L.A.--to trap the murderer before he dispatches all of South­ern California's rich and famous. It's an assign­ment Nicky is reluctant to take on: He'd rather play the piano, worry about his love life, or gaze at the stars above his Hollywood Hills bungalow than search out a serial killer.

Nicky's ex-wife, the beautiful blond star of TV's "Cassie and the Cop," suddenly wants Nicky back. But Nicky finds himself caught up with the lovely and well-heeled widow of one of the murder victims--even as he thinks he really does love his ex-wife.

But someone else loves "Cassie," too. His name is Lawrence Ferguson and he is a nobody. After being diagnosed as terminally ill, Law­rence quits his job, withdraws his life savings, moves to the Beverly Hills Hotel . . . and buys himself a Corvette. And Lawrence has decided to exercise his final fantasy on the woman whose television image he has long worshiped. Can Nicky stop him in time?

The Left-Handed Policeman is a gripping novel of life--and death--among the big names and the nameless of Beverly Hills. Nov­elist Robert Westbrook--himself the son of a famous Hollywood personality--explores the boulevards and back alleys, the myths and real­ities, of the greatest, most deadly dream factory of all: Hollywood.
