LOS ANGELES - Dec. 5, 2017 - PRLog -- K-Town Confidential, the new stylish legal thriller novel by Brad Chisholm and Claire Kim was released by Black Rose Writing on November 30, 2017.  Without giving away too many spoilers, the novel centers on young lawyer Holly Park's defense of beautiful teenager Naomi Linser who is accused of stabbing to death a local councilman. The murder occurs in a gritty Koreatown "room salon" — a private karaoke bar where pretty young girls called "domis" entertain men for money.

While K-Town Confidential was in production, a real life domi — just like in the book - was also accused of killing a man - knife in hand.

Real life murder and a fast-paced legal thriller have too much blood in common. Can Holly uncover her client's secrets before she is convicted of the murder? What is your defense when the media have already decided you're guilty?

Americans love Koreatown for BBQ, spas, night-clubs and 'Gangnam Style', but Claire Kim's experience as a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney enables her to peel back the layers of the real Koreatown. As for the real-life murder, we asked Claire for her thoughts (she is not an attorney on the case) and she said "the answer is in the book."

Claire and Brad's next book, Kat & Maus, (a romantic drama set in beautiful Lake Louise and also published by Black Rose Writing) will be released in January, 2018. In the meanwhile, K-Town Confidential definitely defines death imitating art!

Langtons International Agency in New York represents Chisholm and Kim, and their novels.
