Book Recommendation: Dream Town by David Baldacci

I enjoyed reading Dream Town, the latest of three Aloysius Archer novels by David Baldacci. Click on the links to learn more about the author and this book.


Dream Town

Private investigator and World War II veteran Aloysius Archer heads to Los Angeles, the city where dreams are made and shattered, and is ensnared in a lethal case in this latest thriller in #1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci’s Nero Award-winning series.  

It’s the eve of 1953, and Aloysius Archer is in Los Angeles to ring in the New Year with an old friend, aspiring actress Liberty Callahan, when their evening is interrupted by an acquaintance of Callahan’s: Eleanor Lamb, a screenwriter in dire straits.
After a series of increasingly chilling events—mysterious phone calls, the same blue car loitering outside her house, and a bloody knife left in her sink—Eleanor fears that her life is in danger, and she wants to hire Archer to look into the matter. Archer suspects that Eleanor knows more than she’s saying, but before he can officially take on her case, a dead body turns up inside of Eleanor’s home . . . and Eleanor herself disappears. 
Missing client or not, Archer is dead set on finding both the murderer and Eleanor. With the help of Callahan and his partner Willie Dash, he launches an investigation that will take him from mob-ridden Las Vegas to the glamorous world of Hollywood to the darkest corners of Los Angeles—a city in which beautiful faces are attached to cutthroat schemers, where the cops can be more corrupt than the criminals . . . and where the powerful people responsible for his client’s disappearance will kill without a moment’s hesitation if they catch Archer on their trail.

Good morning Roy. My next venture after my current history book is four more Stuart Woods Stone Barrington books. Have never got into the Balducci stuff. Enjoy your day.

I am not sure if I have read a David Baldacci book.  I may have to put him on my reading list after reading your post.

Hi, Roy. Baldacci is one of my "go-to" authors. I have read all of his books and guess what's next? I will get it downloaded on my Kindle. Thank you for the information.

The good ones are dying out.  I love the CJ Box books and the Baldacci.  Two different settings but both great authors.
