“L.A. Noir and crime fiction never go out of style,” said Michael P. Naughton, co-founder of Muse on Rodeo, “because they are rooted in the best of hard-boiled crime writers like Chandler, Hammett and Ross Macdonald. Miles Corwin, like Michael Connelly, is our modern day voice, keeping the mysteries of L.A. and the classic hard-boiled authors’ spirits alive.”
