L.A. Burning: A Novel

We rated this book:


Cody Bonner has just served time for a bank robbery and is being released back into her L.A. life. The daughter of a Hollywood actress, Cody lived a charmed childhood and then became tempted by drugs. While she was in prison, her twin sister Julie was killed. Now, Cody is desperate to find Julie’s killer, and she will stop at nothing to seek revenge.

After a slow start, I was hooked on L.A. Burning within a few chapters. Cody Bonner learned a lot in prison, including how to fight and get away with crime. I loved reading about her taking down sleazy men throughout the book, and I rooted for her to find Julie’s killer. This book was suspenseful and kept me interested, anticipating that Cody would solve Julie’s murder case and give the killer what he had coming. The backdrop of the L.A. film industry kept the book exciting and confirmed the stereotype of film moguls as shady characters. Cody is a strong female lead who won’t take no for an answer. This book is fast-paced, well-written, and tough to put down!
