Shortcut Man: A Novel

In the best tradition of James Ellroy and Elmore Leonard, p.g. sturges has written a smart and entertaining crime novel set in the underbelly of Los Angeles, with a cast of characters that runs the gamut from saints to sinners. In the center of it all is Dick Henry, a shortcut man, who cuts through red tape for his clients, whether it be an elderly woman ripped off by shady contractors, or a landlord with a pesky tenant many months behind on the rent. Sturges's characters live in a world where right and wrong is a fine line, a line often crossed by our hero, Dick Henry, who knows that the shortest answer to many problems may not always be legal.
