PEPPERED WITH SNAPPY, STACCATO PROSE THAT POPS CLEAN OFF THE PAGE!

pastedGraphic.pdf

With A-List, Dr. Doug Lyle serves up a prescription that’s equal shades light and dark, a canny blend of humor, hijinks and just plain fun. Think classic James Ellroy-like Hollywood gothic relocated to New Orleans when superstar actor Kirk Ford wakes up one morning next to a dead girl whose mob relatives promise to be none-too-happy about her denouement.  Enter Lyle’s trusty private eye Jake Longly to weave his way through the tangle before both Ford’s latest movie and his life get shut down for good. The result is one part Carl Hiaasen mixed with two parts Elmore Leonard and garnished with Robert Parker at his best.  In Longly, Lyle has crafted a modern-day Phillip Marlowe or Sam Spade, perfect representatives for their age, just as Longly is for ours. His first-person narrative is peppered with snappy, staccato prose that pops clean off the page, making this a series and author you don’t want to miss.
