A witty and sexy satire about how contemporary American culture defines right and wrong, good and bad, from the acclaimed author of The Bones . When good guy Marcus Ripps takes over his black sheep brother's lucrative dry cleaning business, he has no idea what he's in for. Before long, he is running one of the most popular escort services in West Hollywood. As the money starts pouring in, he revitalizes his marriage, buys a new Mercedes, and gives his son a bar mitzvah he'll never forget. But, when his conscience--and the law--starts to catch up with him, Marcus must decide if his sudden financial windfall is worth all the risk. A wild, clever, consistently hysterical romp, Shining City is an L.A. adventure that will keep you guessing to the very end.
