City of Angels

Author Kenneth Bromberg

The year is 1924. Sam Lacy, a tough-as-nails homicide detective, follows his own code of conduct within the racist and corrupt Los Angeles Police Department. Sam's beautiful ex-girlfriend has been murdered and a sadistic predator is assaulting young Chinese women. Are the crimes connected and can Sam stop the killers before powerful forces stop him? Sometimes, a good detective can't let the law get in his way.

Sam navigates L.A.'s seedy underbelly with help from an unlikely trio: Sam's partner, Lonnie, a handsome detective whose cavalier attitude conceals a troubled past outside of the law; Sam's friend, Edward Bixby, a brilliant man whose crucial forensic work is performed off the books since the LAPD would never hire a Black man for a murder investigation; and Susan, Sam's sister and moral compass, a war widow and mother who pursues leads of her own. The story takes place in the movie capital of the world, a city that attracts wide-eyed innocents and cold-hearted killers; a City of Angels.

Kenneth Bromberg

Kenneth Bromberg has wanted to be a writer for as long as he can remember. Born in Queen of Angels Hospital in downtown Los Angeles, he has had a lifelong fascination with the city’s corrupt and colorful history. This fascination is woven into his second novel, City of Angels, a noir tale set in the back alleys of 1920s Los Angeles, as well as his first book, American Dreams, a multi-generational saga about three immigrants from Europe who flee to New York City before arriving to the glitz and glamour of a very different corner of Los Angeles: Hollywood.

After college, Bromberg worked as a bartender, listening carefully to yarns of customers who'd left behind a checkered past to transform themselves into soap opera stars, real estate agents and even police officers. He later earned an MBA at UCLA and became a certified public accountant. During retirement, he started his writing career in earnest, utilizing the knowledge gained from his life experiences, a passion for history, and an ear for narrative.

Bromberg lives in Santa Monica, California, with his wife, Carol, close to their grown sons. He is currently working on his third novel.
