Kurzbeschreibung

Robert B. Parker and Robert Crais fans will enjoy 2011 "Best Novel" nominee Hallinan's overeducated private eye, Simeon Grist. In the second book in Hallinan's cult series, originally published in the 1990s, Grist takes a case, that leads him to the phantom neighborhoods of L.A.'s lost children.

Missing thirteen-year-old Aimee Sorrell, who ran all the way from Kansas to be a star. But Aimee's trail soon leads Simeon to the city morgue, the first stop on a perilous journey to find out what happens to America's lost children when they go looking for love in all the wrong places.

*From Publishers Weekly
Simeon Grist, seen before in The Four Last Things , is an up-to-date private eye, a hip survivor of the Woodstock Generation bemused by current L.A. life. He's also a bit seedy, drinking too much and backsliding into cigarette smoking, with a wry outlook and heart of gold that keep him squarely in the hardboiled Hammett-Chandler tradition. Hired to find a 13-year-old runaway who left Kansas to become a Hollywood star, Simeon soon finds himself mired in L.A.'s seamy underworld of teenage hustlers, pimps and all-around losers. Using as decoys his teenage godchild Jessica and a young computer whiz smitten by her, Simeon uncovers a vast interstate ring involving a talent agency, a bent cop and high-tech kiddy-sex. While providing a nasty new meaning for a computer "menu" and some scenes not for the squeamish, Hallinan employs skillful pacing, L.A. color and Simeon's attractive persona to grip readers right through the gory climax and somewhat reassuring ending.

*From Booklist
Hallinan's first novel, The Four Last Things, introduced Southern California professor-turned-private-eye Simeon Grist and was notable for its superior plot, dialogue, and characterizations. The second Grist novel is as entertaining as the first, although its subject matter – child prostitution – is hardly light. Hired to find Aimee Sorrell, a 13-year-old runaway from Kansas City who has been kidnapped, Grist attempts to get a lead by hanging out with the young hookers and pimps who frequent the area between Sunset and Fountin Boulevards in Hollywood. His discoveries lead, first, to a strange alliance with the bizarre Mountain (a self-appointed guardian angel who tries to convince the runaways to go home) and, next, to the recruiting of Grist's goddaughter, Jessica, and her computer-nerd friend, Morris, to assist in the hunt for Aimee. Hallinan once again supplies a riveting story, and Grist continues to be one of the most intriguing of the new private eyes. Be forewarned, though: the denoument is grim indeed.

*From Library Journal
Simeon Grist, persistently hard-nosed private eye, searches the draggy side of Los Angeles for a little lost rich girl. The 12-year-old's mother has received obscene pictures and a ransom note of sorts, so Grist, disgusted and enraged, dives into a graphic world of teenage prostitution, drug abuse, instant violence, colorful street people, and odious exploitation. By treating a grimly fascinating subject matter and location with sharp-voiced style and verve, Hallinan rises far above his first effort, The Four Last Things .
Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc.

“Squeal combines high-octane action, baroque violence, humor, and pathos in a self-assured manner that marks Mr. Hallinan as a capable practitioner of the private eye tale. (Tom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Getting better and better 3. September 2010
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is Mr. Hallinan's second novel, and the second that I've read. It started out a little rough (for me, your mileage may vary) in the first chapter, as he was setting up the setting (as it were) where much of the novel takes place, but from that point on it was literally very hard to put down. I read it in two days (which is fast for me, as I like to read slowly and enjoy every sentence). Well-drawn characters (love-able and hate-able both) and a story line that sucks you from one scene to the next (and sucks the emotions right out of you).

Highly recommended! (But beware: the novel deals with child-prostitution, and doesn't gloss over very much. Keep a well-secured lock on your emotions...)

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Roller Coaster Ride, Hollywood Style 15. September 2010
Von Vena - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I am very nearly finished with novel and can already feel myself jonesing for the next installment in the Simeon Grist series.

I'm not, by nature, a hard-boiled mystery fan and certainly not when the books deal with tough subjects such as child prostitution, but I revised my tastes based on Mr Hallinan's novels. In EVERYTHING BUT THE SQUEAL, specifically, it's the humor that has me hooked (one passage had me laughing so hard I cried - "Mr Okra") and it helps to balance out the darker material.

EVERYTHING's pace is quick, but it's written in such a way that the reader is still able to catch all the action without feeling like a page (or two) was accidentally skipped.

If I could give this book six stars, I would. Since I can't, I'll simply say this book is absolutely worth the roller coaster ride it'll take you on. Just make sure you're strapped in good because once you start, you won't be able to stop and some of the drops are -really- hairy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic book...Fantastic author! 7. September 2010
Von mglaveen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This was the third Timothy Hallinan book I have read, and I am totally impressed with his writing. He rates in my top 5 authors now, and I have been searching the internet to find and purchase his other books. Yes, he writes about gritty subjects, but he handles the topics with care, compassion, and humanity. I love his writing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fast and Furious 19. Februar 2011
Von Lil Gluckstern - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Tim Hallinan does it again. He takes us on a fast, funny, and difficult ride through the dark side of Los Angeles on the shoulders of another charming protagonist. Simeon Grist is a P. I. who is good hearted, and loving, protective, and very angry at the exploitation of young girls-and boys- in the Hollywood sex trade. When he is hired to find a missing girl, he becomes embroiled in some pretty awful situations, some of which are not for the squeamish. With the assistance of his teenaged goddaughter and her computer geek buddy, and a few other less conventional types, he sets about looking for her. The pace is fast, the story is engaging, and I'm off to get the next Simeon. The only thing slowing me down is that I don't want to run out of Hallinan's books before he writes another.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hallinan does not disappoint... 14. April 2012
Von fourkids - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I LOVE Hallinan, and am particularly fond of the Simeon Grist character (I hear rumors that another Simeon Grist novel might be forthcoming...I really do hope it's true!)

His humor and wonderful phrasing hooked me from the get go. You will NOT be disappointed with this one.

Note that this is probably the "grittiest" of the Simeon Grist novels...gritty, not graphic. If you want a less gritty taste of this author, try "Man with No Time"...that one will hook you and you will be back for more!
