To live and die in L.A. Zen Moses is either having a bad day or bad karma. Her cat is dead. The IRS wants to talk to her. And she just found her long-lost cousin's body bound to a beer keg at her favorite neighborhood bar. It's enough to drive even a tough private investigator to drink, smoke a good cigar, and find a firm male shoulder to cry on. But cynical, wise-cracking Zen is both a loner and survivor. At thirty-three she's already beat a bout with cancer-- and soon she's being offered big bucks to find a talk-show celebrity's missing father. It seems like an easy job until Zen finds out she's just one step ahead of a hit man. Now Zen's professional and private lives are converging into a world of murder and gunplay...and the sound of one hand clapping may end up being bang bang.It was during Sama#39;s next long silence that I started to wonder what I should have been wondering as soon as I saw Sam on ... I angrily stubbed my half-smoked cigar out on my parquet floor, the one Ia#39;d spent last summer refinishing. ... I pushed myself up and felt my way across the room to my desk, where I keep a humidor.
