Dream Town Summary
1953 LA. Private investigator and World War II veteran Aloysius Archer intends to ring in the New Year with old friend, aspiring actress Liberty Callahan. Screenwriter Eleanor Lamb interrupts to hire Archer.
After events escalate—mysterious calls, the same car outside her house, and a bloody knife in her sink—Eleanor fears for her life. First a dead body turns up inside of Eleanor’s home . . . and Eleanor herself disappears.
To find both the murderer and Eleanor, Archer enlists Callahan and his partner Willie Dash. The investigation takes him from mob-ridden Las Vegas to glamorous Hollywood to the darkest corners of Los Angeles—a city where beautiful faces belong to cutthroat schemers, cops can be more corrupt than criminals . . . and powerful people who took his client will kill Archer on their trail.

4.0 out of 5 stars Complex but entertaining story
Reviewed in the United States on August 23, 2022
Taking place in 1952/53 Los Angeles, Aloysuis Archer, private investigator, finds himself embroiled in the search for a missing friend of a friend. During the course of events, Archer as he prefers to be called, searches literally high and low throughout LA for the missing woman. He hob nobs with the rich and famous and mixes it up with the lowest criminal element in his efforts the find her. Very little is as it seems on the surface as Archer digs deeply into the personal lives of the characters. Dead bodies turn up with regularity, Archer’s life is in jeopardy several times and secret pasts are revealed.
The story is told in the tradition of the noir novel. You can almost see the scenes in black and white as you read. My only complaint with the book, which cost it a star, is there are too many characters. Though they all add to the story, sometimes it was hard for me to differentiate and keep track of who was doing what and to whom. This was especially frustrating when the plot got to be particularly twisted. Part of the problem was I read the book in relatively small in increments. It would be far less confusing if you have the time for long stretches of reading. I do recommend this book to those who enjoy thrillers and mysteries.
5.0 out of 5 stars A New Noir Detective
Reviewed in the United States on September 6, 2022
Aloysisus Archer is perhaps David Baldacci’s greatest fictional creation. When we first meet him, in another book, he is a WWII veteran and recently released from prison. By this one, he established as a competent private eye who, with his partner, solves cases in Southern California. In this one, he’s on his way to Hollywood in the bright red Delahaye roadster he won in a card game, hoping to see the woman of his dreams. Before he’s done—well, just read it. You’ll like it. Get the first two and watch for the next one.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good read
Reviewed in the United States on August 26, 2022
This was the emergence of a talented investigator after to good but not quite read for prime time stories about his birth into the business (referring to the character, not the author). Now he has reached a maturity that suggests strong stories to follow. I very much enjoyed this book and look forward to the next one. Well done Mr. Baldacci.
