Hollywood, 1961. After a blow to the head, the beautiful Viktor Scott wakes with no memory of her attempted rape that left her permanently deaf. But her rich father has stifled the police investigation for fear of bad publicity. When Viktor begins a new life as a cat burglar, it seems only a matter of time before she crosses paths with the straight-shooting Lt. Clegg. But better to run afoul of a hard-bitten detective than his quarry: a serial killer with a twisted appetite for posing his victims' corpses as Playboy centerfolds. A mid-century noir redolent of Ross MacDonald and James Ellroy.
