L.A. fashion photographer Nick Gardner has a secret: another identity, buried for more than a decade. Taking readers from the shores of Malibu to the pages of "Vogue", "Shooters" reveals the naked truth behind the twin worlds of high-fashion and photography.
Hot L.A. fashion photographer Nick Gardner, the narrator of this frantic noir thriller, doesn't make obvious moves. When bombshell porn queen Candice Bishop turns up dead in his dumpster after a wild night of sex and drugs, the obvious move would be for Nick to call up the hot music-video director who set him up with the girl and the coke. But Nick doesn't pursue his innocence like an ordinary man, because he doesn't feel innocent or ordinary. He feels like "one of the great losers of all time." A hopeless morality tale about the wages of lust and greed, this novel nevertheless offers a stylish twist on classic noir. Nick isn't just shadowed by a dark past, he insists on it, eager as he is to assume responsibility for his actions yet refusing to believe in any kind of forgiveness or redemption. All the ingredients for a classic thriller are here, in an out-of-the-past plot that reaches back to when Nick had another name and another life as a "shooter"-a director of quickie porn flicks.
