Snowball

Snowball by Jimmy Sangster

James Reed is an ex-Scotland Yard detective who became the bodyguard, then lover, then husband, then ex-husband of Hollywood superstar Katherine Long. Now he’s a self-styled beach bum, living in the Malibu beachhouse he got in the divorce settlement, and making a half-assed effort at screenwriting. But then Katherine comes back into his life —  her rebellious, spoiled daughter Caroline is mired in the Hollywood celebrity drug scene.  Katherine thinks James is the only one who can get his former step-daughter out before it beomes a scandal…or worse. The problem is, Caroline doesn’t want out, and his troubles snowball as James becomes an unwilling player in a $2 million scheme involving stolen drugs, high-powered studio execs, and ruthless mob killers

Reviews For Snowball

Snowball 5.0

Smooth, sharp, believable, well written.

New York Times

Snowball 5.0

A distinctive suspense-drama. The people are made sleazily vivid and the dialogue is sharp.

Kirkus Reviews

Snowball 5.0

Sangster writes hardboiled prose that packs a good story and introduces a hero worth seeing again.

Library Journal

Snowball 5.0

Crammed full of sex, drugs and Hollywood. This book is a bright evocation of La-La-Land. Welcome Mr. Reed. Come back soon.

Hartford Courant

Adept plotting and achingly human characters.
